The good news is: Waste management get's more attention, e.g. here and here.
COPLARE on Waste and Plastics in Oceania
The article vividly reports about our findings during the crossing of Oceania and leads to the conclusion that we are faced with societies
and communities which, due to their resources, their geological conditions, their economic performance, their education and culture, are in all probability not able to handle the waste issue before
waste piles destroy the last paradises on earth.
With this article, COPLARE hopes to contribute its share so that the public discussion is steered to the topic of waste management and that the shortcomings in the current practices are
identified. We will only be able to attain more recycling as soon as the homework regarding waste management is done. This is what we learned by the crossing of Oceania!
