Tagline
Lorna dreams of a world where everyone has access to basic amenities such as food, water, shelter, security and environment. She's passionate about eradicating the poverty by creating job opportunities for the poor marginalized Kenyans. She took the entrepreneurial plunge and conceived Ecopost in 2009, a business that utilizes waste plastic to manufacture plastic lumber and posts which provides an alternative to timber. She has created over 300 jobs, saved over 250 acres of forests and withdrawn over 1,000,000 kg of plastic waste from the environment. She is the 2011 Sub-Saharan Africa Cartier Laureate.
