Last week, the United Nations took the first steps towards the approval of a plan to create the world’s first global plastic pollution treaty in Nairobi. The member states have held talks to agree on the outline of a pact about the soaring plastic pollution, one of today’s greatest environmental crisis widespread all around the globe. However, this great achievement for the planet has been shadowed by the news of war in Ukraine.
The partners of this project, as agents preoccupied with the environmental repercussions of today’s behaviours towards our planet, want to show our support and enthusiasm on this amazing achievement. All efforts on the promotion of a more sustainable design on plastic packaging would imply a change in the creation and consumption of any product. Thus, and as Inger Anderson (Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme) stated, “this is a historic moment” that we must celebrate and emphasize.
