Right now, the Australian Senate is considering new laws on waste and recycling.
If we act today, these laws can be used to stop plastic from killing wildlife – but only if we get senators to fix them.
The Morrison Government has proposed a new set of laws called the Recycling and Waste Reduction Bill 2020. The laws will replace existing laws governing waste from products like plastic, and ban the export of plastic waste.
But these laws don’t get rid of plastic packaging, and they rely too much on voluntary targets that don’t work.
We have just days to convince Senators to change these laws and stop plastic pollution. Will you send a message today?
