World Plastics Council supports G7 leaders marine plan | Plastics News#utm_medium=email&utm_source=pn-sustain&utm_campaign=pn-sustain-20150618&email_sustain#utm_medium=email&utm_source=pn-sustain&utm_campaign=pn-sustain-20150618&email_sustain.

The World Plastics Council has welcomed news that leaders of the G7 group of countries laid out a “bold action plan” to cut marine litter while at the recent summit in Germany.

“One of these solutions is the Operation Clean Sweep program which is currently being rolled out, globally and along the value chain.

“The plastics industry is successfully contributing to reducing the loss of plastic pellets. We are pleased that the G-7 leaders have recognized this as an important measure.”

Last time I read the ACC was fighting anything to reduce the use of plastic. So lets hope this council can really do something as it has not been too effective so far. Our marine plastic levels are far too high and not receiving enough publicity.
