Images: Making interlocking blocks from plastic waste

The Developmental Association for Renewable Energy (DARE) has began training youths on how to recycle plastic waste, albeit to make interlocking tiles, blocks, roofing tiles, and to decorate homes.

The Kaduna-based not-for-profit group takes EnviroNews through the process on Sunday, January 6, 2019.
