    UN Environment Assembly pledges to stop plastics seeping into the oceans

    “Pollution is cutting short the lives of millions of people every year. Every day, nine out of 10 of us breathe air that exceeds WHO guidelines for air quality”

    The world's environment ministers have pledged to stop plastics seeping into the planet's oceans in a step “towards a pollution-free planet”. Delegates at the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) in Nairobi, Kenya, have called for a radical change in how goods are consumed and produced to tackle the world's rubbish problem.
