38 Degrees, the group behind the defense of the sale of the UK woodlands and forests, are voting on which campaigns their 800,000 members should support and fight.
There is a campaign vote which we should all support …
Many communities across the UK are fighting their local councils about decisions to build waste incinerators in towns, near homes, on farm land and in areas of natural beauty and interest. There are many more planned for the UK. The USA has not commissioned an Incinerator since the mid 1990′s however they are still being built in the UK by American companies. There are better, greener and healthier alternatives to waste management.
Typically councils are locked into 25 year contracts and agree to provide the privately owned incinerator companies with a certain quota of waste or else face hefty fines. This undermines recycling and is bad news for the whole of the UK as in areas with incinerators rubbish set aside for recycling is diverted to these incinerators. Please support this campaign.
