As if our environment isn’t already covered in plastic pollution, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) wants to flood Kenya with plastic, and then sell recycling as a solution - which data has proven to be a untrue - to the major problem they will create!
The Council, which made up of a variety of entities, including petrochemical companies, wants the US Trade Representative to include terms in the upcoming US-Kenya trade agreement making it easier to export plastic to Kenya. This is despite Kenya’s new plastic bans!
The Council sees Kenya as the gateway to Africa! They are not just threatening to derail Kenya’s plastic-free ambitions but the progress made across the African continent.
The Kenyan Ministry of Trade, Industrialisation and Enterprise Development has the power to say NO. Urge Cabinet Secretary Hon. Betty C. Maina, CBS to commit to Africa's Plastic-free vision as they enter into negotiations with the US. Sign our petition NOW.
