In the meantime, apart from the plastic pollution, Sudan is facing other environment issues, top of them desertification or desert encroachment.

Our ongoing drives to conserve and revive water bodies are addressing the pressing problem of clogging by plastic wastes. "It's what we do with it".

REMA now encourages Rwandans to live without disposable plastics to make the world a better place for today and future generations. The choices may not be easy. Thus one can say that the plastic pollution calls for the dire attention of the global population and that too with a good cause.
