Last week, a Greenpeace investigation exposed how UK plastic recycling is being dumped and burned in Turkey. Since then the Turkish government has shown leadership to protect its people and wildlife - and banned almost all UK plastic waste imports.
While it’s great that Turkey is acknowledging the problem with plastic, we can’t let the UK government just find another country to exploit and dump our waste on to.
The UK government must take responsibility for our waste - stop dumping it on other countries and introduce measures to drastically reduce the amount of plastic we produce.
Can you use social media to tell Boris Johnson to be a leader in tackling plastic, and stop dumping our waste on other countries?
