Children born with defects due to dioxins absorbed by their mothers, farm land left unusable, crops ruined, millions of litres of milk contaminated, cancer cases going through the roof…toxins released from burning and breakdown of our rubbish have no safe dosage. We need to put a stop to it. Reducing usage is the first port of call. If we are producing less rubbish, governments and organisations will be under less pressure, and therefore may take to time to fund alternatives.
In a perfect future everything needs to be recyclable or biodegradable, I hope we get there.
