ABSTRACT
In the past few decades, environment support campaigns have become more and more frequent and significant. It is a paradox that the most coherent environmental policies have come from those states that through the centuries have ignored natural values to the benefit of economic development. These states have gradually learnt that economic power means nothing as long as people do not live in an adequate living environment, able to provide primary resources and harmonious social development. In a nutshell, it means durable development, promoting the right balance between the economy, environment and society, making sure that the next generations will benefit from at least the same resources and living standard as developed societies. Starting from this premise, environmental initiatives mainly focus on issues like soil pollution caused by farmyard manure infected with the Clostridium tetani bacterium. The bacterium causing tetanus, Clostridium tetani, is normally found in the animals’ intestines and can pass into the manure. When the conditions are favourable, the bacterial culture grows and may survive indefinitely. The risks are high in rural areas, where poverty and the primitive agricultural methods play a major part.
