To world leaders:
The global plastics treaty being negotiated in 2023 and 2024 is a great opportunity - please don't throw it away!
With people around the world, we’re calling for the treaty to address fully the impacts of plastic pollution on those living in poverty, by including:
- Reduction: legally binding targets to reduce plastic production and scale up refill solutions
- Recycling: funding for the collection and recycling of everyone’s rubbish
- Respect: support for waste pickers, including a just transition
- Response: mechanisms to ensure businesses and governments take action
Please ensure this plastics treaty helps end the world’s rubbish problem.
Tell plastic treaty negotiators not to waste this opportunity!
Our world has a rubbish problem, and it’s hitting people living in poverty the hardest.
All the world's governments are working on a global plastics treaty during 2023 and 2024. It's a huge opportunity to get an effective, binding plan that holds big polluters to account, reduces plastic production, supports the vital work of waste pickers, and ends the impacts of plastic pollution on people living in poverty.
We’re standing with Christians from around the world to call for bold action to end the plastics crisis.
This rubbish situation can change if we act together
