Recently in Turkey, People are still throwing their garbages to seas, to streets instead of trush boxes, pouring oils to the sinks, throwing batteries to the ground(soils), lighting up their garbages. If they would know the results of this actions, they wouldn't do that. This is because of lack of education and awareness. Also our accountables can not direct this processes properly.
