Plastic pollution ranging from plastic bottles and packaging to textiles and cosmetics is a complex issue that requires dynamic solutions. Despite the growing global consensus that comprehensive solutions are needed, no binding international efforts exist to combat this issue until now.
This Earth Day Live session featured international voices leading the charge to advocate for an international treaty banning plastics. Global leaders on multilateralism and pollution controls provided a comprehensive overview of this treaty, ways that it can develop leading up to UNEA-5.2 and beyond, and how you can support this providential opportunity to take action against plastic pollution.
