The EU’s top environmental official has suggested that clamping down on virgin plastic production is a crucial part of tackling climate change.
Plastic production providing a growing sector for the Oil Industry, but plastic waste is piling up in the world’s oceans.
Last month a study of ice cores revealed traces of nanoplastics in both polar regions for the first time.
“The biggest topic, at the end of the day, oil use for single use plastic.”
Virginijus Sinkevicius the EU Environmental Commissioner.
