Nigerian teens create fashion from waste to curb pollution


LAGOS, Nigeria — Teenage climate activists in Nigeria’s largest city recycle trash into runway outfits for a ‘Trashion Show’.

Chinedu Mogbo, founder of Greenfingers Wildlife Initiative, a conservation group that works with the activists, said the show was designed to raise awareness about environmental pollution.

Lagos, one of Africa’s most populous cities with a population of more than 15 million, generates at least 12,000 tons of waste every day, authorities say. And the implementation of environmental laws is poor: The World Bank estimates that pollution kills at least 30,000 people in this city every year.
