Ban degradable plastics

More than 40 major organisations have called on the government to stop plastic materials that require additives to degrade from being sold on the UK market.
The calls follow news that the British Standards Institution (BSI) enacted a new specification (PAS9017) this month supporting the sale of such plastics.

Signatories to the open letter have urged the government to follow the EU’s lead, and ban similar oxo-degradable plastics from 2022.
