A collective movement addressing coastal plastic waste

Bahari Moja is a community led initiative aiming to find solutions to the blight of marine plastic in the absence of waste management on Kenya's remote North coast. Situated in the Kiunga Marine National reserve, Bahari Moja was formed by communities affected by the tides of plastic overwhelming the coastline and in turn threatening general health, livelihoods, ecosystems and marine-life.
           Bahari Moja is a Community Based Organization registered as Kiunga Bahari Moja. It is part of the Kiunga Conservancy Wildlife Association (KICOWA), a Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT) member conservancy. Together with private and public sector partners Bahari Moja aims to address the dramatic impact plastic is having on the environment and the communities who depend on healthy ecosystems for their livelihoods; by collecting, sorting and recycling plastic waste; by raising awareness on healthy waste management, and by creating tangible economic and environmental benefits for the communities affected.
