Poor waste management and mobility issues in low-income Brazilian communities led to the "Bairro Limpo" (or "clean neighbourhood") project aimed at fostering collective environmental responsibility among the public while encouraging community-building.

Problems and Purpose
A high level of waste generation in poor Brazilian communities and a low budget for waste management systems necessitated the need for the "Bairro Limpo" ("clean neighbourhood") project, particularly in such low-income communities. Some unsanitary habits that are present in Brazil include dumping waste in the streets, failing to separate waste, and partaking in little, if any, recycling and composting.
The Bairro Limpo project aims to foster environmental responsibility and educate low-income communities in Brazil on waste management. It hopes to generate new values for the communities, such as dignity and a sense of self-confidence as well as provide an indirect and direct income source.
Background History and Context
The project was inspired by empiricial cases in India, Bolivia, and Brazil itself, where adapted solutions to waste management have been implemented.
