Plastic pollution is a very big problem in Haiti's major cities. Each and every day the Haitian people are consuming soft drinks stored in plastic bottles and throwing these plastic bottles in the streets of our cities.

A lot of these plastic bottles end up polluting our water canals, accumulating in our rivers, flooded farm lands, and our beaches.
