Hello everyone I believe this message will find you in good health

Indeed, instead of collecting plastic waste, communities burn it and this contributes to the emission of greenhouse gases including methane gas, a greenhouse gas 25 times more than carbon dioxide. This is why, on April 6, 2023, the youth of AICED, member of GAIA and BFFP, collected the plastic waste that pollutes Lake Edward, also raised awareness among households about the consequences of the incineration of plastic waste while collecting these waste in order to set an example.
