Solid Waste Management to Improve the Resilience of the Environment

Belize is working on solid waste management, but individual actions are also vital for climate justice.

Waste, and by extension its improper disposal, has serious impacts on environment. It is at the root of micro plastics which is affecting marine life. But trash, for which tens of thousands of tons are produced daily, can also be linked to climate change. In Belize, a solid waste management plan has been working to address the issue, but there are things that you can do personally to help achieve climate justice.
