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.

Toxic-laden plastics should not be recycled. A circular economy is one where a resource's life is extended or it is repurposed sustainably i.e without polluting/harming the environment or people.
