OUR STORY

When we revived African Solutions in 2017 we did so because we believe Earth is our most valuable resource. We saw plastic was on the verge of becoming one of Earth’s most devastating environmental threats and we took the lead to be a part of the solution.

Plastic was not invented to be thrown away. Plastic is strong, flexible, and built to last. Which is why plastic isn’t the problem. The problem is that we didn’t have a good plan for its future. So now it is packed into landfills, burned at the edges of Mogadishu city and others towns in Somalia sending toxic smoke into the air, and there are continents of it floating at sea killing precious wildlife. Enough is enough.

After years of development for industrial mass production, our patented Plant can consistently converts all types of plastic waste into a high-performing, advanced building material that enables communities, corporations, NGOs and governments to make use of their plastic waste, while cleaning up the planet.

We create jobs, improves infrastructure, and revitalizes neighborhoods everywhere.

OUR MISSION

Protect the environment by enabling the recycling industry to recycle the unrecyclable.

OUR GOAL

TO RECYCLE 100 MILLION TONS OF PLASTIC BY 2030
