Week 11 Last week in Australia, the Minister for the Environment Tanya Plibersek announced a 12 month moratorium allowing Australian to to export 20,000,000 tonnes of PET plastic. We diligently collect, separate and deposit our recycling plastic, imagining our drink containers ambling along a conveyor belt to miraculously eject at the other end as… another bottle or even a jumper. Not boarding a boat to be shipped to Europe or Asia. Our country’s waste may be sold and then on sold, where it has the opportunity to end up as landfill or in the ocean.
