Venezuela’s new recycling initiative

World Today

Recycling is one of the most accessible environmental actions available to everyday citizens. Still, some countries lag behind, like Venezuela, where one environmental group estimates less than 15% of waste is recycled. However, a new initiative aims to change that.

The Recyclers Club, a program aimed at fostering the recycling of materials, has taken root in the Petare Slum of Caracas.
