Microplastics

Wednesday 20 September 2017

More and more governments are banning lightweight plastic bags to prevent waste and major marine plastic pollution, with Western Australia joining most recently. The environment minister’s response to my latest question shows little leadership, relying on litter prevention, businesses choosing to act and CSIRO research. Governments must act fast and decisively to halt the environmental and health disaster that is looming. My questions HERE.  

See the CHOICE article on microbeads many consumers don’t know cause pollution, HERE. Support the Total Environment Centre campaign to reduce plastic waste and pollution HERE.
