In this week’s blog, we would like to discuss what is being done in Europe to tackle plastic waste, and most importantly what should be doing to overcome these issues.
This blog focuses on how the majority of plastics are just ‘downcycled’, rather than being labelled ‘recyclable’.
Since we are becoming increasingly aware of the astronomical impact plastic waste is having on the natural world, more and more people are beginning to try and cut down the amount of plastic which they use which this blog focuses on.
In this series of blogs, we will look at why reducing plastic waste is crucial, and the ways in which this can be achieved in both personal and professional environments. We will also look at the producer obligations for packaging waste and how this contributes to the ‘EU’s action plan for the Circular Economy’.
This blog will discuss what the Government’s plan to ban plastic microbeads means.
