Scott Morrison to call for global plastic policy at UN – AustraliaPosted on October 6, 2019 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
The PM is pushing for a commercially sustainable model for global recycling in a call at the UN that also urges more action to clean up the world’s oceans.
We need to take action on climate change, but there are actually issues like plastics in our oceans which present even more immediate threats,” Mr Morrison said.
“Not only to the wellbeing of our oceans from an environmental perspective, but they have quite significant impacts on health, particularly in the Pacific Island communities, particularly when you’re talking about nano plastics.
“I am sure that we can take action on climate change and actually raise the priority and focus on dealing with the world’s waste management and plastics problems and be able to achieve both.”
