But work still needed to tackle litterers

A leading environmentalist has welcomed the government's plastic reduction plan.

In a formal launch event at the Legislative Buildings on Monday (23 July), Beach Buddies founder Bill Dale said the move is a positive step forward in combatting pollution at its source.

However, Mr Dale believes the plan should look at tackling the 'one or two per cent' of Islanders who choose to litter.
