Organized Women of Salitre Community Clean-Up Program
The community of Salitre is primarily inhabited by the indigenous Bribri people. The town lacks access to any municipal waste management services. Consequently, litter and recyclables accumulate throughout the settlement without being recovered. This project is composed of two phases: Firstly, the project proposes that the community collectively conduct litter clean-up twice a month in the area. Directing refuse to locations away from town will reduce exposure to infectious agents and toxins. Women and children are partners will also be engaged in developing the conversation around environmental stewardship in homes and schools in Salitre, particularly as the larger region seeks to cultivate a green image.
