The EU Commission has just released a draft proposal on restricting intentionally-added microplastics from various packaging, cosmetics, sports pitches and other general materials.
The BPA had responded to the consultation as follows:
“There is an obvious gap in this consultation. A large proportion of the microplastics are not intentionally-added. They are released into the environment from the embrittlement and erosion of ordinary plastic items (including man-made fibres in clothes) and these fragments of plastic can lie or float around in the environment for decades.
