Plastic soup: Keep micro plastic fibres out of our oceans


This resolution is in keeping with the WI's
longstanding concern for sustainable marine environments and members' tradition of taking action on issues at consumer and household level.

This is an issue which is not currently widely understood or publicised, and is one which the parliamentary Environmental Audit Committee has recommended decisive action as part of its investigation into micro plastics. The WI could help bring attention to the issue and encourage the government and industry to make it a priority.
