RATING | ★★★★★

Ethiopia is a country in constant growth, 70% of the population is under 25 years old and plastic consumption has increased dramatically.
Officially four million people live in Addis Abeba, but it is estimated that the real number is more than double. To calculate the consumption of plastic bottles is nearly impossible. Statistics say that there were 21 million bottles in 2010. By the end of 2020 there will be hundreds of millions of bottles.
