Welcome to Jemmal, Tunisia—a small coastal town about 15 km from the Mediterranean Sea.

In this episode of Field Reports, Ryan Schoenike visits a local plastic collection point next to a dried-up river bed that is full of plastic waste. In the winter months, this ravine will fill with water, leading the plastic into the ocean. Our work here is to better understand their business, how they work and how we can help to improve and support their plastic collection efforts—to divert this plastic before it hits the water.

Learn more about how we work.
