What can be done to prevent further pollution of fragile ecosystems (rural/urban)?

  • Often times when traveling in less developed countries and particularly in rural areas, one sees the lack of proper waste management systems. Rivers filled with decomposing rubbish, people burning plastic and other toxic waste materials as the only way to dispose of their garbage, being asked NOT to flush toilet paper down the toilet, etc. How can visitors to these places avoid contributing to the problem of pollution?
