The Rubbish Petition
Dear Minister for Environment and all those negotiating the plastics treaty,
Don’t throw away this opportunity!
The New Zealand Government must ensure this plastics treaty helps end the world’s rubbish problem. With people around the world, we’re calling for the treaty to fully address 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
