“This webinar is being provided free to the public in support of Beyond Plastic Bermuda’s efforts to provide information to the community regarding the Government’s intention to restrict the import of certain single-use plastic items.”

Erich Hetzel explained. ‘It is important that the community understands the issues surrounding plastic and plastic waste. The plastics issue is about far more than litter and its danger to sea life.

“Those are important issues, but this is also about climate change, environmental justice and human health. We would hope that once the public understands the depth of the issues, that they will support the Government’s initiative to limit the imports of many single-use plastic items.’

Katie Berry added, ‘’It is indisputable that the world needs less single-use plastic. The question becomes how we do this in Bermuda. I hope you will join Erich and I and learn about why we need to embrace sustainability and reduce single-use plastic. We want to hear from you so we can figure out how to best do this in Bermuda, so please join us after the webinar for a panel discussion, and let us know your ideas and thoughts.’
