Single-use plastics: a roadmap for sustainability
If current consumption patterns and waste management practices do not improve, by 2050 there will be about 12 billion tons of plastic litter in land flls and the natural environment warns this new UN report released on June 5, World Environment Day 2018. It also provides a road map to reduce single-use plastics.
A new report from UN Environment finds a surging momentum in global efforts to address plastic pollution. The first-of-its-kind accounting finds governments are increasing the pace of implementation and the scope of action to curb the use of single-use plastics. In what is framed as the first comprehensive review of ‘state of plastics’, UN Environment has assembled experiences and assessments of the various measures and regulations to beat plastic pollution in a report: “Single-use Plastics: A roadmap for Sustainability.”
