Thousands expected to help spring clean Lake GenevaPosted on May 19, 2016 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
Around 1,500 people are expected to volunteer in this weekend’s lake-cleaning exercise on the shores of Lake Geneva.
This year’s clean-up focuses on plastic, highlighted as a particular problem in Lake Geneva in a study by Lausanne’s technology institute EPFL.
Speaking to news agencies on Tuesday, national councillor Guillaume Barazzone said the amount of plastic rubbish is down to the fact that it’s produced in the first place.
“I launch an appeal to large supermarkets to reduce their packaging and put an end to plastic bags,” he said.
