NEW IPEN Video: Plastics Threaten Human and Environmental Health

IPEN’s new Toxic Plastics video provides an overview on how toxic chemicals in plastics threaten human and environmental health throughout the plastic life-cycle, from petrochemical production through disposal.

Messages covered in the short video include:

  • Most plastics are not recyclable.

  • Toxic Recycling: new plastic products made from recycled plastics can contain a toxic soup of dangerous chemicals.

  • Landfills leech toxic chemicals into soils and groundwater.

  • Incineration creates toxic pollution, including dioxins. Exporting plastic waste is poisoning communities around the world.

    Are there any short videos on plastic pollution that I can download onto my laptop? I’d like to show a video at a building without wi fi
