We are pleased to introduce Going Green Recycling Company (GGRC). We are in active partnership with the Going Green Natural Foundation (GGNF) in our quest to play a vital and necessary role in creating awareness in our society that there is an urgent need for us to stop the pollution of our environment, especially plastic bag pollution. (Plastic is a non-biodegradable material, takes 500-1000 years to decompose). In 1974 the first use of plastic bags was introduced to stores, and today over one Trillion bags are used each year (all the plastics ever manufactured worldwide are still in existence on earth). A family of four uses approximately 1500 plastic bags a year.
Plastic bags and bottles are clogging our drainages, killing our livestock and wildlife. Fish in the ocean confuse plastic pieces for plankton (food). There is an ever growing patch of discarded plastics in the Pacific Ocean (approx. 700,000 sq km) 3/4 the size of Nigeria and ships must navigate around it.
We should be aware of the implications of climate change, green house gas emissions and its effect on the erosion of the Ozone layer.
As Nigerians we go about our daily activities impervious of the impact our collective activities are having on our environment. Recall the recent floods that took place in Lokoja and some coastal towns? Preview of things to come. Weather extremes such as excessive rainfall (due to climate change), rising sea levels increases the risk of coastal flooding (Nigeria has 893 km of coastline). Most parts of Lagos is less than 5 meters above sea level, and others below sea level such as Maroko, this means that the whole of Lagos could someday be submerged by the advancing ocean, maybe sooner than we imagine if precautionary measures are not taken now. Ifako-Ijaye the farthest part of Lagos from the ocean is just about 40 km (measured in a straight line) from the shoreline. The advancing ocean is clearly apparent in the continuous erosion of Alpha beach, Badagary beach and others. Goshen Beach estate in Lekki built in 2003 with the ocean 100 km away is now less than 20 km from the shoreline.
