UK firm announces potential drastic plastic action against staff

Plastic from land often finds its way to the coast

UK A company has announced plans to help ease the problem of plastic pollution by changing staff contracts to try to stop single-use plastic being brought into the workplace.

Anyone ignoring the new rules would receive warnings and could then face the sack.

The company, Intelligent Hand Dryers (IHD), introduced an office ban on all single-use plastic recently, including plastic cutlery, cups and food packaging. They have even provided free fruit and cake as an incentive for staff not to bring plastic-wrapped food items to work.

The problem of single use plastics polluting our oceans is becoming more and more apparent and the issue is a concern for whales and dolphins, many of whom digest the plastic waste or become entangled in it [pollutiomn]

Earlier this year, the EU approved a ban on single-use plastics in an attempt to reduce the amount of plastic pollution feeding into rivers and then out to the ocean.
