"The whole world is shocked by climate change. Amid the pandemic breakdown, we must take the action from the core by cleaning up our environment. To do so, we need your support in championed the ban single-use plastics and ban tonnes of plastic wastes from other countries getting inside of our country. Let's be the changemakers by starting a donation from home!"
Are you worried of COVID-19? Ever thought about the bad environment that screws up our life? Are you aware of the air pollution that completely is a silent killer? Do you know that Malaysia considers being the world's waste bin? Do you want your grandchildren seeing the full of plastic wastes in our land continuously in the next 30 years? Me neither.
Generally, most of the developed countries are carrying plastic wastes where it purposely for recycled or further processed to the developing countries or underdeveloped countries. As you know, most of the developed countries have lost their major importer when China started banned most import plastics wastes in January 2018. Malaysia is then taking the lead by importing nearly millions of tonnes between January and July 2018 and currently Malaysia had received more than billions of tonnes.
GREENPEACE MALAYSIA here had already investigated that the international trade system is broken down which is allegedly to regulate the importing and exporting of recyclable plastic wastes globally and these import activities actively jumped into Southeast Asian nations to fill the gap. Currently, criminal actors have abused the inability of legal operators and also, the failure of authorities to cope with the increased imports just to make quick dirty money. We are all getting sick to hear these so often because it already threatens millions of people's health and it creates haze every year.
Fundraised here is aim to:
- making research and reports
- getting rid of plastic wastes by ending the single-use plastics
- pressuring the local authorities
- pressuring the companies
- protecting our forest
- protecting our sea and land
- support our campaign by creating awareness to the public
- making efficient enforcement policies and strengthening the laws
- demanding people's power
AND SO MUCH MORE!
If not you, then who? If not now, then when?
