Plastic pollution in Wales

David Clubb talked to Radio Cymru this morning about plastic pollution in Wales. Here’s the recording.

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
