Celebrate Life Below Water. Eat Blue

In Post-Trump Reversal, U.S. Joins Call for Global Plastics Treaty

The United Sates and France have joined in an alliance to call for an international treaty for plastic pollution. Both countries plan to launch these negotiations at the upcoming 5th UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) to promote a #circulareconomy.

The treaty would include binding and non-binding goals and ultimately strive to limit the amount of plastic in the world’s ocean. The United States’ inclusion in this treaty signals optimism, as the US is one of the world’s biggest plastic polluters and a major exporter of plastics to the Global South.
