Plastic Waste – US Contributions

On November 30, 2020, the National Academies announced that the second meeting of the Committee on U.S. Contributions to Global Ocean Plastic Waste will meet virtually on December 7, 2020 to “… examine the import and export of plastic waste to and from the U.S., as well as assess the prevalence of mismanaged plastic waste and the potential value of a national marine debris monitoring system. In addition, the committee will also develop recommendations to reduce U.S. contributions to global ocean plastic waste …” – The web link to the announcement is included in the post on the home page of Plastic Food Packaging Waste News at #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #MarineDebris
