The liberal application of pesticides and fertilizers without appropriate safety measures and the improper disposal of their containers have led to serious health issues in Nicaragua—which, in turn, has attracted negative media attention.

BSR and partner organization uniRSE are working with ANIFODA to identify best practices, success factors, and barriers to implementation, and develop a strategy to continue expanding the organization’s container recycling program.
