This is unbelievable — western governments are dumping millions of tonnes of plastic waste on developing countries instead of recycling it!
We’ve all seen shocking pictures of paradise beaches choked with plastic waste. But I bet none of us knew the plastic could be from Europe, the US, and Canada!
Right now, in a bid to tackle this scandal, a summit in Geneva is deciding whether to stop the export of plastic to countries that can’t process it.
There’s a huge support for the idea, but big business and powerful governments like the Trump administration are trying to block it. Champions say a massive show of public support could make the difference, and will take our voices into the room on Saturday — so let’s speak out urgently with a single clear message: stop dumping plastic in paradise!
