Every year, Kenya imports more than 100,000 tonnes of second-hand clothes or mitumba. Some of the good quality clothes get sold and reused, but an estimated 35,000 tonnes are thrown away and end up clogging rivers or in overflowing landfill sites like Dandora, Africa's biggest, in eastern Nairobi.
For CGTN Europe’s Trash or Treasure special we travelled to Kenya to find out more.
