A Toxics-Free Future


Argentina GDA

Global day of action on POPs in Argentina.

Activities included the preparation and distribution of a press release on the global launch of the release of The Egg Report, putting specific emphasis on the POPs releases from waste incinerators and the need to take action to eliminate those toxic releases. Translated copies of the IPEN Egg Report were delivered to local and regional governments throughout the country, and a letter was sent to the Secretary of Environment and Sustainable Development. The letter reminded officials of the promise made by the Argentine government when ratifying the POPs treaty. The letter called for taking the measures to minimize and eliminate POPs, highlighted the existence of incinerator alternatives that do not produce POPs, and urged the government to phase out waste incineration and implement alternatives for waste management. Other members of the Coalition made special presentations on radio shows on the launch of the IPEN Egg Report.
