Just last year, Malawians across the country celebrated a decisive, nationwide ban on plastic bags.
This win did not come easily. In the face of a long and arduous court battle against powerful plastic manufacturers, organisations from all different spheres of society came together to champion the government’s thin plastics ban.
The Malawi Creation Care Network, a collaboration of Christian individuals and organisations and the leader of the Renew Our World campaign in Malawi, played a vital role in securing this ban.
Charles Bakolo is the National Coordinator for the Malawi Creation Care Network and one of the lead organisers of a series of marches that called on the courts to rule against all thin plastic manufacture, import, distribution and use in Malawi.
An inspiring man with a clear vision, Charles shares how he and the Malawi Creation Care Network are building a powerful movement of people for environmental change.Read More
