Darren calls for plastic waste legislation

MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones has called for additional legalisation to reduce plastic pollution and protect the environment following yesterday’s (26/4/18) announcement of a Plastic Pact between businesses and government. Darren has already backed the Plastic Free Parliament campaign, called for a reduction in supermarket waste and supported the creation of a protected Blue Belt Marine reserve.

Darren said:

“It’s great news that 40 big businesses have pledged to cut their plastic waste over the next 7 years – but the duty to protect our environment from plastic can’t solely rely on businesses goodwill.

The government must urgently legislate to cut plastic pollution and protect our environment. Businesses must also pledge to reduce their plastic waste as soon as they can – rather than aim to do so by an arbitrary deadline”.
