Africa has a waste plastic pollution problem, but some creatives are helping to turn them into usable products to solve the rising menace.
Adejoke Lasisi, a Nigerian creative who works in the environmental sector, has turned waste pure water sachets into a colourful dress.
Ghana-based CEO of Mckingtorch Makafui Awuku, the Nigerian designer makes fabric from waste pure water sachets and uses the kente weaving system to bring it alive in beautiful prints.
Lasisi was captured in the company of loved ones as she flaunted the beautiful dress. She paired her look with a coordinating bag.
While most commenters gushed over Lasisi, some were utterly blown away by the dress.
