Ocean Conference No Single Use Plastic | United Nations

United Nations published this video item, entitled “Ocean Conference No Single Use Plastic | United Nations” – below is their description.

There could be more plastic than fish in the ocean by the year 2050 – and a United Nations Conference convening in Lisbon bans all single-use plastic at the venue in Lisbon as part of a push for sustainability there.

The Altice Arena has made a strong commitment to preventing waste and employing recycling, according to spokeswoman Felipa Nascimento.

As some 8,000 participants head there for the UN Ocean Conference, she

describes how the venue is using carpet made from old textiles, water stations instead of single-use plastic bottles, and recyclable.

“It’s work, but we believe it’s work that has to be done,” she says.

The Conference convenes in Lisbon from 27 June to 1 July 2022.
