Bringing Green Living to Ghana

Sustainable living shouldn’t just be for the middle class—environmentalists in Ghana’s capital Accra are pushing for a greener future for all.

But it also has toxic traffic fumes, clogged open drains, and plastic-lined beaches. Sustainable might feel like it’s for the middle class—but environmentalists are trying to change that.
