Mexico City – The three Herrera siblings are minors who help their parents make a living by collecting garbage.
They live with their parents in a cardboard and wooden house, with a dirt floor, surrounded by mountains of plastic waste and decomposing food in the Bordo of Xochiaca, a garbage dump outside Mexico City.
Every morning before dawn, Anely, 10, Gerardo, 9 and Erika, 8, walk from home to the dump to help their parents sort the garbage in search of plastic bottles.
They are part of a lucrative supply chain run by Coca-Cola and seven Mexican bottling companies.FanBoy, Mom Cat, Shlabotnik like this
