Clean City

We are a technology-driven social enterprise committed to eradicating plastic waste pollution and severe flooding in Nigeria through the power of upcycling that creates jobs and economic liberation for Nigerians and beyond. We create value and wealth in the form of eco-furniture from waste plastic products and also employ a community-based social benefit and incentive scheme that rewards plastic waste recycling.

By partnering with local communities, through monthly clean-up programs we sensitize the general population on the dangers of indiscriminate plastic waste disposal and its contribution to: flooding, environmental degradation, destruction of life on water and climate change.


Through our various collection agents, social benefit scheme and partnership with ‘plastic waste producing hubs’ like: malls, event centres, university campuses, we collect waste plastic bottles for upcycling.


We convert the waste plastic bottles to a range of products and eco-furniture, thus creating ‘value from waste’.


By putting our products up for exhibition at local and international trade fair events, we propagate our vision and display our model.


Through our e-commerce platform, our products are available for purchase anywhere in the world.


We have had 4 community outreaches and empowerment drives and we aim to do even more!
