Don’t waste it

 

Careless waste disposal doesn’t just make the lake and region look bad, it causes serious health risks.

Rubbish disposal has always posed challenges in both the remote and lake communities of the Inle Region.

General littering was not widely criticised traditionally when waste was biodegradable.

Now imported goods have brought plastics and other imperishable packaging to the region, and the bad practices remain.

Plastic or not, irresponsible waste disposal spoils the clean water, kills plants and animals, attracts disease to your area and makes a place look disgusting.

At our site we have information about the proper separation of waste products, composting biodegradable waste and best practices.

We also run ongoing clean-up projects in the local community where volunteers help out and help spread the word around the Inle Region.
