Do Global Actions to Address Plastic Waste Overshadow Greater Environmental Threats?

According the abstract of a report published October 22, 2020 in the journal Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs) Water by researchers with the UK University of Nottingham and others  “… Mismanaged plastic waste poses a complex threat to the environments that it contaminates… This concern has driven global action … Here we argue …that the current discourse on plastic waste overshadows greater threats to the environment and society at a global scale … Contemporary consumption and disposal practices are the root of much of the anthropogenic waste in the environment, plastic, or not. Effective environmental action to minimize plastic in the environment should be motivated by changes in consumption practices, policies, and product design, and should be informed by objective science and legislation …” – The web link to the abstract is included in the post on the home page of Plastic Food Packaging Waste News at #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #FoodPackaging
