尼日利亞。青少年在現代時裝秀中循環利用垃圾

對大多數人來說,答案是把它們扔進垃圾桶--但尼日利亞的一個保護組織不是這樣,該組織與年輕的活動家和模特合作,把垃圾變成了 "時尚"。

但在周六,他們將注意力轉移到了T台上,並創造了一場表演,作為倡導減少廢物的新方式。

綠手指野生動物保護組織的創始人Chinedu Mogbo說,關於污染和氣候問題的教育還不夠,因此像時裝秀這樣的活動是娛樂和教育的完美載體。

Mogbo解釋說:"我們希望年輕人成為倡導陸地和水中生命的一部分,"他已經為自己設定了目標,即 "每次在一個社區 "儘可能多地回收塑料。

但在尼日利亞,回收並不容易:廢物管理和廢物處理是令人擔憂的問題,因為垃圾往往是在一個點收集,在另一個點排放--這意味着它沒有得到有效的處理。

因此,時裝秀是將他的垃圾收集工作 "更進一步 "並重新利用一些 "以前沒有被回收 "的垃圾的一種方式,他說。

這些垃圾--是在該組織定期清理排水溝、海灘和社區的垃圾時收集的--最終作為時裝秀的一部分出現在了跑道上。

"16歲的模特Nethaniel Edegwa說:"我決定參加今年的表演,因為我真的想做出改變[...]我們可以看到,我們都受到氣候變化的影響,所以我真的想做出改變。


For most people, the answer is throw them in the bin - but not one Nigerian conservation group, which worked with young activists and models to transform the rubbish into "trashion".

But on Saturday, they turned their attention to the catwalk and created a show as a new way to advocate for waste reduction.

Chinedu Mogbo, founder of Greenfingers Wildlife Conservation, said there was not enough education about pollution and climate issues and so events like the trashion show were the perfect vehicle to entertain and educate.

"We want young people to be a part of the advocacy for life on land and in water," explained Mogbo, who has already set himself the aim of recycling as many plastics as possible "one community at a time".

But recycling in Nigeria is not easy: Waste management and waste disposal are concerns, as rubbish is often collected at one point and discharged at another point - meaning it's not disposed of effectively.

So the trashion show was one way to take his rubbish collections "a step further" and reuse some of the waste which "wasn't recycled before", he said.

The waste - which was collected during the group's regular rubbish clean-ups at drainage ditches, beaches and across communities - eventually found its way onto the runway as part of the show.

"I decided to take part in this year's show because I really want to make change[...] we can see that we are all being affected by the climate change, so I really want to make a difference," said 16-year-old model, Nethaniel Edegwa.
