Wales’ role in plastic pollution

The Committee on Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs of the National Assembly has published a report on plastic pollution. It makes twelve recommendations to Welsh Government on ways to improve our environmental performance, including:

  • Legislating to restrict microplastics
  • Create a 10-year strategy aimed at reducing plastic pollution
  • Implement an extended producer responsibility scheme for plastic
  • Implement a Deposit Return Scheme (DRS)

Our partner, David Clubb, was invited onto Radio Cymru to discuss the recommendations of the report. The recording, including English translation, is below
