Sign the Senedd petition on microplastics
Published: 15 Jul 2023
Microplastics are thinner than a human hair but they are causing big problems for life in our oceans and on our land.
They have been found from the highest mountain tops to the deepest oceans and plastic microfibres from the clothes we wear are estimated to make up about 35% of the entire plastic pollution in our seas and oceans.
Microplastics have been found to be toxic to marine life and growing evidence suggests they are harmful to life on land, including ourselves.
We call on Welsh Government to draw up a new Microplastics Action Plan to protect life in our seas and on our land.
