BAN is the world’s only organization focused on confronting the excesses of unbridled free trade in the form of “Toxic Trade” (trade in toxic wastes, toxic products and toxic technologies) and its devastating impact on global environmental justice. Working at the nexus of human rights and environment, BAN confronts the issues of environmental justice at a macro level, preventing disproportionate dumping of the world’s toxic waste and pollution on our global village’s poorest residents. Further, BAN promotes sustainable and just solutions to consumption and waste crises.
