Tracking your plastic: Exposing recycling myths

CBC News
September 27, 2019
Marketplace journalists go undercover overseas and pose as recycling brokers to expose the lucrative plastic recycling business. We reveal that Malaysian companies are willing to break the law to buy Canadian plastic and show how some of it is dumped and burned in illegal landfills, where the toxic fumes and run-off appear to be making people sick. Back in Canada, we buy nine tonnes of plastic and secretly track where big companies are taking it. Will it actually get recycled?

Bolsonaro and the Amazon Fires | Mercosur Trade Agreement

Ecosia
September 25, 2019
Two thirds of the Amazon Forest lie within the borders of Brazil. After the Amazon Fires, whatever Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, decides to do, will have an impact on the worldwide climate. So what can we do to protect the Amazon Forest? The European Union - and French president Emmanuel Macron particularly - are trying one tactic: threatening not to sign the so-called MERCOSUR Trade Agreement. This agreement between the EU and 6 countries in Latin America, including Brazil, is an absolute priority for Brazil’s agricultural sector. The agribusiness lobby in Brazil would lose access to a very lucrative market if the ratification of the Mercosur Agreement were to fail. But the Amazon Fires and Jair Bolsonaro’s rejection of any foreign help from the G7 or the international community to protect the environment have sparked a bigger question: who will protect the world’s forests?

Uganda’s New Forests

Ecosia
October 29, 2018
Climate change is not just an environmental issue. It’s also a matter of justice: those least responsible for climate change often suffer its worst consequences. In Uganda, we met some of these people. Climate justice isn’t just about helping them adapt to a changing climate – through local tree-planting projects, for instance. It also requires us to listen to their stories, and to spread their message. That is what our mini-documentary aims to do. When we decided to visit our reforestation project in Uganda, we did not expect these stories to be what they turned out to be: stories of resilience, innovation, and solidarity.
