PANDEMIC PLASTIC PROBLEM

Discarded single use face mask lying on grass

The sharp rise in demand for disposable masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment (PPE) during the Covid pandemic has had a negative impact on the fight against plastic pollution.

The problem is illustrated in a selection of articles collated by the Geneva Environment Network, a partnership of over 100 environmental and sustainable development organisations based in and around Geneva.

Drawn from a wide range of sources, the collection paints a grim picture of the impact of single-use PPE over the past year.

Other topics covered by the Geneva Environment Network on its Facing the Plastic Pollution Crisis page include: international cooperation on plastics; plastics and biodiversity; plastics and climate change; plastics and human rights; and plastics and trade.
