In  September 2020, WFO expanded its activities and launched WFO Africa.

Waste Free Oceans Africa aims to raise awareness of the harmful effects of plastic waste pollution through educational initiatives and clean-up events across the continent. The objective is not only tackling waste, but also instilling a sense of respect and responsibility towards the environment.

On a bigger scale, WFO Africa aims to develop a funding proposal with local organisations for a project that will have a significant positive impact on local communities and support local economies. WFO Africa intends to develop plastic recycling facilities to support a circular economy all over Africa.


WFO Africa currently operates with its African partners in the following countries:

  • South Africa

  • Kenya

  • Tanzania

  • Togo

  • Ivory Coast

  • Nigeria

  • Cameroon

  • Gabon

  • Ghana

  • Congo

  • Egypt
