Stop dumping plastic in paradise!

To all governments at the Basel Convention:

Our plastic addiction is killing whales, turtles, and other marine wonders -- and harming communities where plastic trash is dumped. As citizens from around the world, we call on you to support Norway’s proposal to end irresponsible exports of plastic waste to developing countries that cannot process it.

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 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 are taking our call into the conference right now -- so let’s speak out urgently with a single clear message: stop dumping plastic in paradise!
