We uncover the true facts behind these 10 Plastic Myths
This work recognises the achievements we have made so far. However, there is a distance left to go to achieve our recycling goals and a circular economy.
Supported by the Ministry of the Climate and Environment of Norway, GRID-Arendal presents 10 common myths about plastics and plastic waste. Using scientific evidence from publications, grey literature and state-of-the-art information from practitioners in the field, each myth is debunked. The analysis of these myths provides insights into the issues around plastic recycling that face our society, and demonstrate the overlapping nature of the challenges and the strategies for what we can do. Further analysis is needed to provide a fully comprehensive analysis of plastic production and waste.
This work recognizes the achievements in plastic waste management but points out the distance left to go to achieve our recycling goals and a circular economy. The tasks ahead require immediate responses by decision-makers in relevant sectors at the national and international levels.
