Employing Indigenous Cultural Practices in Waste Management
Waste management using indigenous cultural practices
Indigenous cultural practices, such as avoiding waste, taking care of one another, protecting and respecting the land, and connecting to the environment, can contribute to improved waste management in First Nations communities.
This can help by preventing overconsumption and fostering environmental preservation, emphasizing the need for incorporating cultural values into waste management policies and activities to revitalize Indigenous cultures and ensure environmental protection.
“A lot of people ignore our culture when it comes to waste management… However, if you are taught to protect the land, then you need to care more about recycling…”
