The G20 states have undertaken to reduce the amount of waste in the world’s rivers and wastewater, and thus reduce the level of waste in our oceans. Meeting in Bremen the G20 states have adopted an action plan to address the problem of marine litter.
Plastic packaging and other plastic waste account for the lion’s share of the 140 million tonnes of rubbish that litters the world’s seas and oceans. In some places rubbish islands the size of Central Europe can be seen floating on the seas. Birds, fishes and plants are already suffering or even dying as a result. Every year up to ten million tonnes more waste finds its way into our water.
