Summary

Our plastic addiction and waste mismanagement are condemning countless marine birds and animals to death by entanglement or poisoning, and even leading to chemical contamination of the fish we eat. Empower the community of Tiko, Cameroon coastal and beach towns inhabitants to fight against pollution through raising community awareness, educating children, training for local recyclers, clean-up activities, empowering local leaders and environmental groups to take over responsibilities.

Challenge

We are turning our beautiful Oceans into a plastic soup. About 8 million tons of plastic enters the sea every year, and at this rate we face a future with more plastic in the Oceans than fish by 2050. Microplastics are an emerging pollutant threatening species at the base of our food chain, from zooplankton up to fish and marine mammals. Tiko community lack the essential services of water, sewage systems, and a dock. Their plastics and residues if not well disposed of, will end up at our oceans.

Solution

SODEIT empowers community leaders and organizations to implement the residue management plan avoiding an increase in pollution. Local recyclers will be trained, provided with tools, and basic storage to ensure correct recycling procedures. Once they become aware of the ultimate threat to marine life and human health, it will become a personal choice to prevent plastic waste from entering our oceans and food plates. We enhanced awareness, reduced plastic use, and improved waste management.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate the Tiko community, other Cameroon coastal and beach towns' dwellers, in general, to take care of their environment, and improve their living conditions. It will serve all the dwellers in Tiko and Cameroon, by contributing to a cleaner plastic free coastal and beach communities and will harvest environmental awareness in the citizens, volunteers, visitors, and tourists. Creating awareness of the threat of plastic pollution in our oceans, marine life, and human health.
