may’s bid to tackle marine plas­tics

Sunday Mail (UK) - - Opinion -

Theresa May is set to urge all Com­mon­wealth coun­tries to join the fight against marine plas­tics.

At a sum­mit of the 52 lead­ers in Lon­don this week, the Prime Min­is­ter will an­nounce mea­sures worth more than £ 61mil­lion to fund re­search and help clean up the oceans.

May will urge all mem­ber coun­tries to sign up to the newly-formed Com­mon­wealth Clean Oceans Al­liance.

She said the “scourge of marine plas­tic pol­lu­tion” is “one of the most sig­nif­i­cant en­vi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges fac­ing the world to­day and it is vi­tal that we tackle this is­sue”.
