Documentary Highlighting Plastic Pollution in Kenya to Air on NTV

(L to R) Local community in Watamu pick up plastic waste on the ocean’s shores in a bid to save marine life from plastic pollution


Every year five to eight million metric tons of plastic end up in the world’s oceans.  Only five per cent of plastics are effectively recycled and a third end up in fragile environments.  If this trend continues, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.

Giving Nature a Voice, a project of The Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media and Communications will premiere of the documentary, Plastics are Forever, on NTV Kenya this coming Sunday. The documentary examines how plastic waste continues to pollute and kill our precious marine life and how local people are fighting to save Kenya’s coast. This timely documentary echoes the call by world leaders and leading environmentalists to stop plastic pollution at the just concluded third United Nations Environment Assembly held in Kenya.

Plastics are Forever will launch the second season of our award-winning documentary series, Giving Nature a Voice and will focus on East Africa’s most critical environmental issues including; drought, poaching, climate change and deforestation. Join us in giving nature a voice before it’s silenced forever.
