Many children and adults all over the world are campaigning to reduce littering, and combat climate change.
• More countries have introduced bans on, or increased the price of plastic bags, because they do damage. Rwanda in Africa was the first country in the world to introduce a ban on plastic bags. • Many countries are working to make it easy to do the right thing, for example by putting out more rubbish bins with lids, so the waste doesn’t blow away, and improving recycling systems. • Producers – the companies that make plastic packaging – are being encouraged to develop smarter packaging that doesn’t end up as litter.
Children from debt slave families in Pakistan rally against littering and for a clean and healthier environment.
