Retail giants commit to reducing waste footprint


Will these measurements be take from materials recycled in the UK, or include those which are exported and or dumped overseas? Simply exporting such goods does not constitute recycling, as these may well end up in landfill in other countries. Reducing our "footprint" at the cost of others in not morally correct. If it is generated by UK consumers, then it should stay in the UK, and be used in alternative products, and only then, "IF" there is any surplus should this be exported. More stringent controls on exports of such products is what is required to ensure we commit to and standby what we say, and do.
