80% of local people of Martinique believe that the air pollution on the French South Sea Island has a big impact on their health! Even if you might think that the air pollution in mainland France and particularly in the big cities has a more significant effect on people´s health, the local inhabitants are affected by the pollution caused by exhaust gases and sandstorms. 59% of the individuals surveyed say, that they never use public transport. On the other hand, 50% among them hope for a bigger individual and collective involvement of people, which should first come from the local authorities. We are following this issue with great interest and we expect concrete action!
