Tuesday 14th October is Global day of action against waste incineration and for zero waste. So it seems like a good day to acknowledge all those who signed ZWNW’s petition opposing the gasifying incinerator proposal at Campsie, which in March of this year was shelved.
It is important now to keep up the momentum to move the North West towards a zero waste response to the waste generation crisis and continue to do our bit to oppose incineration everywhere, mindful that there are two more incinerator proposals in the North.
We need to wean ourselves and our society off the attitude that not just throws away things, but if it’s not transformed will throw away the future of precious human life on this beautiful planet.
Burning waste pollutes people and the planet, spewing dioxins into the atmosphere.
It contributes towards climate change by producing greenhouse gasses.
Zero Waste creates jobs, saves money and protects the planet.
