Searching through trash cans and hauling heavy loads of recycling by hand is extremely difficult and often dangerous work and although collectors in Istanbul aren’t proud that they have to do this for a living, they aren’t embarrassed either. Their concerns are focused on supporting their families. A tak-tak full of paper and cardboard takes about an hour to collect and when sorted will bring in around $2.00. Many of the young men have left wives and children back in their village and can only afford to visit them a few times a year.

So next time you see a natural disaster, understand you reap what you sow. You sow pollution and negligence, you reap Dineo. So don't attact and complain to the result, attack the farmer who sowed the seed.
