TV star calls for action on plastics
TV presenter Liz Bonnin has called for a ban on single-use plastics in the UK and accused industries and politicians of not doing enough to tackle plastic pollution.
In an interview with Radio Times ahead of her new documentary, Drowning In Plastic, Bonnin said: “When it comes to all single-use products, I just think if we can live without them, we should live without them.
“There is no kind of middle ground any more. Can we live without plastic bottles? Yes, we can.”
Drowning In Plastic comes a year after Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II, and will investigate the effect plastic material is having on marine animals.
Citing Costa Rica’s ban on single-use plastic by 2021, wildlife biologist Bonnin said the UK’s slower action on plastic pollution was not good enough.
