We just took the #breakfreefromplastic Toxic Tours and learned that because of plastic production, clean air and water are a thing of the past for communities in Kochi, India. They showed that over 100 pipes dump toxic liquids directly into their river and over 110 exhaust pipes pump poisonous gases into the air. 

Take the #ToxicTour to uncover the realities of plastic production.

CAG contributed to a global study by IPEN that looked at the chemical contamination in recycled plastic pellets. The study found that recycling plastics carries over the toxins to the new products. Plastics containing toxins should therefore not be recycled; these should in fact, not be considered part of a circular economy at all.
