Yolo B. Smith is a middle-aged Nigerian man who has brought glory upon himself and Nigeria, after launching his creative innovation of converting plastic wastes into durable interlocking bricks.
Reviewing the recent development, the positive impact of this act on our society cannot be overemphasized, leaving aside the innovative prowess. From reductions of plastic wastes in our drainages and bodies of water to our immediate environment. This, no doubt, is a brilliant method to recycle these wastes as its consumption level is thus increasing by the day.
Smith’s coming to limelight has attracted the renowned petroleum company, Shell Nigeria who has decided to sponsor and support this commendable project with a whooping 10,000USD. This support primarily aims at helping him expand the project and perhaps someday see plastic waste-based interlocking bricks used in motorable roads.
Nigerians are innovative and daring. We are proud to be associated with this win.
