Cameroon Activist Transforms Littered Plastic Bottles Into 'EcoBoats'

A young Cameroon activist aims to reduce the prevalence of plastic in the environment. To do that, he is turning littered bottles into “EcoBoats” for fishers of his community.


Ismaël Essome Ebone wanted to develop the boats after watching plastic bottles float on passing floodwaters during a storm in 2011. After collecting plastic bottles from around town, he started to build an “EcoBoat.” When another storm blew in, he tested the concept. To the astonishment of the fisher washing from the shore, Ebone’s boat worked perfectly.


Ebone was so inspired by the EcoBoat that he invested all of his money into launching the nonprofit Madiba & Nature: a charity devoted to collecting plastic waste from around the region and repurposing it into boats for ecotourism and fisherman.


The venture has been quite a success. The Cameroonian organization even installed the first-ever EcoBin in the nation for collecting, sorting, and recycling waste materials.
