From Africa’s parks to its rivers, plastic pollution is everywhere, eaten by our livestock, harming animals like turtles and seabirds, it’s in the air we breathe and food we eat. Plastic isn’t just destroying our natural world, It’s driving the planet further into the climate crisis, over 99% of plastic is made from dirty fossil fuels, and we keep making more. We can change this, but we need to act now.
We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to call for a strong global plastics treaty that will keep oil and gas used to produce plastic in the ground and stop big polluters with their relentless plastic production. A strong plastics treaty will deliver a cleaner, safer planet for us and for future generations.
Last year, governments around the world finally agreed to come to the table to talk about a global, legally-binding plastics treaty. This treaty will decide how countries tackle the plastic crisis from the moment it’s produced, to the moment it ends up in our rivers, forests or toxic dump sites.
This treaty could put us on the path to a plastic-free future, but we only have a year to make sure our governments deliver for people across the world and at home in Africa.
