When growing up in Cairo, plastic pollutants had a devastating impact upon Aya Al-Sharqawy and her family. It was the motivation she needed to tackle the crisis head on after Leeds.

In this episode of My Climate Story, the inspirational Aya explains how the recent death of her father made those impacts even more stark. We learn about her start-up, Recyclizer, and the challenges she's faced in making it a success - including fighting gender discrimination, and her daily battle with serious illness.
