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.
