CHRISTIAN COUNCIL OF GHANA COLLABORATES WITH A-ROCHA GHANA ON PLASTIC WASTE RECOVERY


The city of Accra generates over 3,000 metric tons of waste daily, 350 metric tons of which is plastic. Plastics still linger in our communities and have choked drains which is a major cause of floods. The general attitude of Ghanaians in handling plastics is seen as a major challenge to achieving a clean environment.


In view of this, the Christians Council of Ghana in collaboration with A-Rocha Ghana organized a plastic recovery program in Accra to help find a solution to this menace.


The program which took place at the Christian Council of Ghana’s headquarters in Accra on 28th February, 2020 was dubbed “MOBILIZING FAITH-BASED LEADERS FOR PLASTIC ACTION.” The program sort to sensitize Ghanaians to adapt good attitudes to stop plastic pollution to achieve a zero leakage of plastic waste into the oceans and waterways.


In attendance were the General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana Rev. Dr. Cyril G.K. Fayose, representatives of A-Rocha Ghana, representatives of Churches and the civil society
