What on Earth Georgia, ep. 1: Waste reduction, recycling, ‘Parki Ar Minda‘
Approximately 900,000 tons of waste are generated annually in Georgia and more than 75% end up in landfill sites. This is a serious problem. Not only because of the land grabbing, but also because of the water it generates and contaminates ground waters, states EU Neighbors East website.
Several projects are now addressing the waste problem in Georgia. Among them is ‘Parki Ar Minda’ (‘I don’t want a plastic bag’), whose founders, originally from Russia, Mariam Pesvianidze and Tatiana Remneva, are the guests of this episode of the JAMnews podcast ‘What on Earth Georgia’.
