The UK dumps 1.8m kg of plastic waste on other countries every single day
This is what @greenpeace say Downing Street - Boris Johnson's residence and office - would look like if the UK's daily plastic waste exports were dumped there rather than being offloaded on to other countries 🗑
An average of 1.8m kg of plastic waste is being exported each day, killing wildlife, polluting waterways and disproportionately affecting communities of colour.
The government has made promises to reduce the environmental impact of plastic, but activists are calling for more to be done. They want to see a ban on all plastic waste exports by 2025.
What changes do you want to see?
