Boris Johnson – 2021 Comments on Amazon Destroying Large Quantities of Unsold Stock

The comments made by Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, on 21 June 2021.

It sounds incredible to me, an indictment of a consumerist society, if it’s as you say, we will look into it.

Obviously we don’t like stuff going to landfill under any circumstances that’s why we have the landfill tax and landfill credit scheme, and everything else.

I’m afraid it’s one of those things we’re just going to have to look into and get back to you.

We want to see more reuse, we want to see more recycling but above all we want to stop people using things that are going to be, ultimately, polluting our seas, our world and that means cutting down our use of plastics, you name it.
