11 What s happening? Pae 5 The UN Environment will launch a global campaign on marine litter. It will focus on non-recoverable plastics by working towards a ban on microbeads in cosmetics and a drastic reduction in the use of single-use plastics. In the last 20 years, the proliferation of microbeads and single-use plastics has made the problem even more serious, and unless we act now, our seas will be hit with a plastic-tide caused by human consumption. ********* To reach these ambitious goals, strong government action is required. This means both enacting robust legislation and other relevant policies, as well as supporting on-going efforts from private and civil sector actors to combat marine litter. ********** Page 11
