"I like how it looks, very nice. But still losing millions of nanoplastic particles and contaminating nature, being hazardous for people. It's not "environment friendly". Using natural material would be a good solution. Forget about the plastic, Wangechi Kuria, it is cursed."

Faith Oyamendan said:

"This is phenomenal and I can’t but think that God gave her this ideal specially.
"I literally think that more people should seek opportunities in this area. Fill the gap in the value chain of this waste.
"So we can build a more sustainable community."

Aden Ali iftin said:

"Don't encourage them to recycle the blastic please bcz plastic really finished our livestock in Somalia and Africa at large so point them another route."

Shivangi Kumar said:

"Apart from plastic, the phosphates from detergents in waterways are a growing concern in eutrophication and acidification of waters.
"And excess nitrogen, fertilisers run off. Food and sewage waste high in nitrates due to excess use of pesticides and ammonia rich fertiliser is also an issue.
