Aghan Oscar is a Kenyan man who grew tired of watching trash fill the beaches of his city. He elected to do something about it, and the results thus far have been pretty inspiring. He has essentially come up with an effective way to not only recycle these plastics, but to also take steps to ensure the trees are being protected as well.
In the wake of his desire to clean up his beaches, Oscar established Continental Renewable Energy. This Nairobi-based company works to collect garbage and convert it into materials that can be used to create poles and street signs. The timber that is traditionally used for these products has a couple of problematic downsides to consider. In the first place, the timber is susceptible to vandals and it is also easy to destroy. Worse yet, it is often stolen and used as firewood while also contributing to deforestation. Oscar and his company is working to change all of that.
So far, the results have been highly encouraging. The Kenya National Highways Authority has already purchased more than twenty-eight thousand poles from Oscar’s company. Using sand and post-consumer materials, Oscar and his company have created an approach to manufacturing these items that allows them to offer something that is not only more durable, but also comes with the benefit of being more affordable as well. It appears to be a win-win on every possible front. Another fantastic element to this company that is worth keeping in mind is the fact that the company is owned and operated by Kenyans.
The future for this company looks very bright indeed. Over 250 locals are currently employed by the company, which is working hard to meet an increasingly elaborate demand for their creation. The company believes that measures such as theirs can go a long way towards saving the planet.
