Does burning plastic count as recycling? Of course not, but the plastics industry has coined the term “advanced recycling” as a way to bypass Clean Air Act laws that regulate incinerators.
The plastics industry is actively seeking to change existing law so that plastics incinerators can operate without meeting the environmental and health protections of the Clean Air Act.
What we need is real action from plastic manufacturers that actively reduces their contribution to the growing plastic waste crisis, not another masquerade tactic to continue to profit off of harmful plastic pollution. Will you donate today to contribute to our efforts to curb plastic pollution?
