Plaid Cymru’s North Wales AM has backed the WI’s campaign to reduce plastic in our environment.
Llyr Gruffydd AM said: “Awareness of the damage caused to our environment and wildlife by our continued use of single-use plastics is growing and I’m grateful to the WI for highlighting this with their campaign against micro-plastics.
“This is a matter that transcends the generations – young and old alike have been horrified by pictures of marine animals trapped by plastics and we as politicians must step up to the plate now to deliver lasting solutions to the problem. Among those is understanding that micro-plastics are present in so many products we use day-to-day, such as clothing, but also phasing out the use of single-use plastics in our society. It’s a challenge that we must meet.”
