ANTONIO APARECIDO ALMEIDA, Waste picker in Brazil What really changed my life was a new way of thinking. I was used to think we were always one step behind other citizens and forever fated to live this way. With Novo Ciclo we started to realize that we are much more than we thought. We are not just pickers. We are citizens with rights.
