Imported garbage to be returned from Philippines to Canada!
A few years ago, more than a 100 container vans of mixed waste that were falsely declared as plastics intended for recycling were illegally exported from Canada to the Philippines. GAIA and our members have fought hard against this, and last week, a regional trial court in the city of Manila handed the decision to return the waste to Canada. There is still a long fight ahead to make sure that this court decision will be implemented, but for now, we’d like to celebrate this great news with all of you!
A big THANK YOU from the Philippines and all of us to those who supported this campaign, especially GAIA members and allies in Canada.
