09:35 Commissioner targets govt & biodegradable plastics
The Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, Simon Upton, is calling on government to pick up its game around biodegradable plastics and its overall environmental goals.
The commissioner wants urgent attention paid to understanding the implications for the end of life of these products, as well as sorting out the terminology and labeling schemes.
To this end the PCE has produced an online resource of key facts aimed at improving consumer and business understanding of the plastics issue.
