The Global Plastic Action Partnership reports that Ghana generates approximately 1.1 million tons of plastic waste each year, with only 5% being recycled. The city of Accra alone produces about 300 metric tons of plastic waste daily. Ghana's plan for managing plastic waste indicates that only 25% is properly disposed of, 9% ends up in waterways, and the remaining 66% is burned or dumped on land, releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and contributing to climate change. Effective management of plastic waste is crucial for a circular economy and for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, Ghana's efforts to address the issue have been ineffective and many citizens remain unaware of the negative impacts of plastic waste.

Lucid Future Initiative - Africa (LFIA) plans to launch an advocacy campaign in schools to educate students on the consequences of improper plastic waste management on their health, the environment, and the climate. Through presentations and interactive arts and crafts workshops, students will learn how to reduce, reuse, and recycle plastic waste. This initiative will raise awareness of the potential of plastic waste and its impact on the environment.

In addition, LFIA will implement a plastic waste segregation system in schools and connect them with local recycling companies. This will promote recycling and waste segregation, as well as reduce improper plastic waste disposal. The progress of each school's plastic waste collection will be monitored through a digital dashboard, making the process more engaging and allowing for tracking of the impact.
