Environmental Social Justice: Superfund Sites


by : 
Benjamin M.


This research project takes a closer look at the biased placement of superfund sites, areas where toxic waste is disposed of, and the impacts they can have on low-income communities. The impact that these sites have on the soil and the overall environment is negative. Soil fertility of areas with sites can decrease immensely, further hindering low-income areas by making them food deserts, areas that lack and are in need of fresh produce.
