Africa, the dumping ground for western rubbish

Read Time:43 Second

Africa should not be the dumping ground for Western rubbish. Africa is already battling with the impacts of Climate Change, not caused by her. She should not have to deal with the poop as well. Strong environmental laws are required to stop this from happening on the part of African Countries and the United Nations. We should be accountable for our waste. Companies should not be creating what they cannot dispose off safely. Precautionary principle applies here. Illegal disposal of collected rubbish from western communities in African countries instead of within the country it was generated is not ethical. Africa has not finished dealing with her own waste generation problems not to add that of the West, who by the way, are more capable, to her plate. ‪#‎Africanlivesmatter‬
