Young materials engineer Nzambi Matee is the founder of Nairobi-based Gjenge Makers and her company transforms recycled plastic waste into durable building materials. The company gets waste for free from packaging factories, although she pays for the plastic received from other recyclers. Her factory produces 1,500 bricks each day, each of which are 5-7 times stronger than concrete, made from a mix of different kinds of plastic.
