Earlier this week the European Union (EU) made environmentally friendly legislation requiring all electronics in the bloc to have USB-C charging port by 2024. The electronic range from tablets, digital cameras, video game consoles, headphones, portable speakers, e-readers, portable navigation systems, keyboards, mice and ear buds etc. “The deal we struck will bring around 250 million euros of savings to consumers annually,” Thierry Breton, an EU commissioner for the bloc’s Internal Market, said in a statement.
Today, over 50 tons of abandoned fishing nets were recovered from Lake Naivasha during a clean up exercise by the department of fisheries, “When these nets are abandoned over time they cause what we call ghost fishing. These nets will continue fishing indiscriminately causing negative effects to the fishery,” Nicholas Kagundo. He further went on to explain the danger this form of pollution causes to the ecosystem. The fishermen and residents at large hope to yield more fish after the cleanup.
