Princewill Onyekah is a Queen’s Young Leader striving to make environmental changes in Nigeria.
Together with a group of friends, he co-founded Carryam.ng, a social enterprise working to eradicate the use of plastic bags in the country.
After seeing the effect that plastic waste disposal was having in Nigeria, Princewill and his team began producing bags made from biodegradable products.
They also carry out workshops to teach people about the benefits of using biodegradable bags instead of plastic and to increase environmental awareness.
In the future, Princewill would like the Carryam.ng eco-friendly bags to be available free of charge to all Nigerians.
