Press Release

Oxodegradable ban initiatives

Dear readers,

My apologies for a very long hiatus in blogging. Unfortunately my struggle with health issues still continues and everybody tells me health comes first. However, it is hard to stay away from blogging. Here’s a report that I received late last month regarding oxodegradable plastics.

A recently released statement from members of the New Plastics Economy initiative is proposing for a ban on oxodegradable plastics, and over 150 organizations worldwide ranging from food companies, chemical companies, bioplastics companies, NGOs, industry associations, etc. are reportedly backing up this proposal.

You can read their statements here: https://newplasticseconomy.org/publications/oxo-statement
