We all need to be more mindful of the kinds of plastic products we use everyday.
That’s the warning from Ireland South MEP Liadh Ní Riada.
The Sinn Féin presidential candidate was reacting to EU moves to introduce a range of measures to tackle the mountain of plastic waste destroying the environment and seas.
MEP’s recently voted to ban micro-plastics in cosmetics and cleaning products by 2020.
They also called for the establisment of EU wide quality standards for recyled plastics.
Liadh Ní Riada says new EU rules on plastic are desperately needed.
