The Plastic Problem

This post by Laurie, a Calgary Pro Fellow working for Engineers Without Borders, does a great job discussing Ghana’s problems with waste management, lack of recycling,and the abundant use of plastic.

My host mother bought me a box of bottle water and I’ve been trying to refill the bottles every time I go to the ProWorld bunkhouse. As the former president of my high school’s recycling club, wasting this plastic is killing me.

I hope you take the time to read Laurie’s post and follow her blog!
