#wegotmail: Environmental group calls on governments to take a stand against global plastic pollution

Environmental group BAN Toxics is urging governments to take a stand against global plastic pollution. The group, along with other green organizations, is actively addressing the issue at the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC-3) for the Global Plastics Treaty. The treaty aims to develop a comprehensive instrument to address the full life cycle of plastic, including production, design, and disposal. Plastic pollution is a significant challenge in the Philippines, with single-use plastics being major contributors. BAN Toxics is deeply concerned about the environmental and health risks posed by plastic pollution, particularly in communities with inadequate waste management. The group is actively participating in negotiations for a global plastics treaty, advocating for reductions in plastic use and production, sustainable industry shifts, and the identification of sustainable alternatives. The group also highlights gaps and challenges in local policies and calls for comprehensive approaches to address plastic waste. BAN Toxics aims to position the Philippines as a leader in the fight against plastic pollution and urges the international community to develop binding instruments for a sustainable future.
