Great ideas they say, are born when great minds meet. CAPws was birthed from the need to tackle the three (3) major planetary boundary threats: Loss of Biodiversity, Climate Change and Pollution. The global south accounts for more than 80% of mismanaged plastic wastes. This is due to ineffective waste management systems. However, the devastating effects in our communities and nations threaten our sustainability as a people. Yet, innovations in circular plastic economy promises to alleviate these problems while creating prosperity. Hence, CAPws set out on a mission to address the economic impact of plastic waste within our ecosystems. CAPws is now operating in more than 21 countries and across Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. 

Vision and Mission

At CAPws, our call is to see a world rid off plastic waste and benefiting from the menace plastic has caused in a growing and fast changing economy.

We are empowering young people all over the world to develop strategies, leadership skills, collaborations, institutions, and to build resilient community in achieving net zero position with the environment and help proliferate the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
