Boylan welcomes UN resolution on marine litter

7 December, 2017 - by Cathal Boylan

 Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed a resolution from the UN that the world needs to completely stop plastic waste from entering the oceans.

The party’s spokesperson on climate change said:

“Marine litter is a growing concern and is one of the fastest-growing environmental problems.

“Under the UN proposal, governments would establish an international taskforce to advise on combating what the UN's oceans chief has described as a planetary crisis.

“We all have a responsibility to deal with this issue. The UN can't do it alone we need to work together at government level, with businesses and even individuals.”
