The march was seeking to highlight the pressing matter of working towards an ambitious Plastic Treaty and Plastics Production Reduction and this was by  blending creativity, Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA), and a distinct message, the march seeks to infuse artivism to inspire participants and event delegates. The march brought together people to amplify and  make a strong demand in the ongoing  Intergovernmental negotiations committee ( ICN -3), and demand world leaders develop a robust global plastic treaty. 

The march also highlighted the need to  end fossil fuels considering that most plastics are products of fossil fuels which are contributing significantly to pollution of water sources, loss of biodiversity and climate change.

Before March on November 10 the BFFP (Break free from plastics movement) organized a screening of the Story of Plastic at Sarakasi Dome in Nairobi which was attended by almost 200 people,The Story of Plastic which is a searing exposĂ© that reveals the ugly truth behind plastic pollution and the false solution of plastic recycling. The Story of Plastic presents a cohesive timeline of how we got to our current global plastic pollution crisis and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it. From the extraction of fossil fuels and plastic disposal to the global resistance fighting back, The Story of Plastic is a life-changing, Emmy Winning film depicting one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues and also climate change.
