Single use plastic consultation extended

The consultation period for feedback on single-use plastic proposals has been extended, the Ministry of Home Affairs said yesterday.

Consultation over single use plastics has been extended

It will now end on Sunday, October 31.

A Ministry spokesman said: “The Government remains committed to beginning the elimination of SUPs in Bermuda in 2022.

“This commitment is with explicit reference to not only the marine environment and climate change, but it is also increasingly clear of the detrimental effects of plastics on human health.

“While the importance of these links cannot be understated, solutions to the problem of SUPs are not the sole responsibility of the Government. All stakeholders, including the third sector, private sector, and every resident, must play a part in reducing our dependency on SUPs.”
