AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT LIFTS BAN ON PLASTIC WASTE EXPORTS!!!!!!

On the eve of the new global Plastics Treaty negotiations in Paris, the Australian Environment Minister has decided to reopen plastic waste exports, after a five-year ban introduced by the previous federal government. The 2019 ban on waste exports came in response to China and Southeast Asian countries’ exposé on waste dumping Australia’s plan to re-open plastic waste exports has drawn criticisms from public interest groups in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand fighting for environmental health and justice. “We are very disappointed that Australia is reopening waste exports. Malaysia has experienced the impacts of dirty waste trade from Australia, including wastes that were disguised as ‘fuels’. Australia should prioritize source reduction and take responsibility for their own waste. Do not export harm in the pretext of recycling,” stated Mageswari Sangaralingam of the Consumers’ Association of Penang. “We urge the Australian government to take responsibility for the waste and pollution its country creates, rather than seeking policies that could violate other’s environmental sovereignty and will draw nothing more than condemnation and embarrassment,” added Punyathorn Jeungsmarn, Information and Communication Officer, Ecological Alert and Recovery-Thailand (EARTH). Australia must reverse the lift on the ban! they need to take responsibility for their own wastes! https://www.environewsnigeria.com/groups-urge-australia-to-reverse-plan-to-resume-plastic-waste-exports/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=onuigbo_honoured_for_championing_nigeria_s_climate_change_law&utm_term=2023-05-25

              Lifting this ban diminishes the essence of institutionalising it in the first place.This isn't viable at all

                Plastic waste exportation is scandalous and is at most times a form of greenwashing since most of it doesn't get recycled and so lifting up the plastic ban could possibly make things worse

                              These are some of the topics that the UN should be having at the conference, if they are serious about Climate Change.

                                You'd think they'd be trying to stop plastics, not encourage them.

                                    This is absurd,how can this government be so reckless?is it worth reversing the gains made by the ban in the last five years?
