Unrecyclable Plastics

From the beginning, plastic was not designed to be recycled once it became waste. Promoting recycling has mainly responded to increased protests against pollution, predominantly championed by petrochemical industries that want nothing to do with cutting down on production.

As we negotiate for a global #plastictreaty, which could take time due to derailment by oil-producing countries and petrochemical industries, we must continue pushing for local or even regional mechanisms to address the problem of plastic.
