Marine polluting plastics in the firing line with NSW action

microbeadsEnvironment groups campaigning to protect the health of the marine environment and the food chain today welcomed the action by NSW Environment Minister, Rob Stokes to nationally ban plastic micro-beads.

The battle to clean up the oceans of ever-expanding soup-like plastic pollution is worldwide and Australia, with its extensive coastline has an important role to play, the groups said.

Jeff Angel, Executive Director, Total Environment Centre said: "Plastic pollution of the oceans, beaches and marine food chain damages what every Australian values about our beautiful environment. Action does need to be taken and we call on industry to fully cooperate with Environment Minister Stokes on the micro-plastics. Many companies are already moving on this and there are ready alternatives.
