The UN has thought about the fight against plastic packaging

The UN has thought about an important step in the fight against environmental damage from plastic packaging: we are talking about a possible ban on a certain chemical that is often used in their production, the Daily Mail tabloid reports in a joint publication with Greenpeace.

The substance UV-328 is contained in many types of packaging, although studies show its possible harm to human and animal health. The chemical accumulates in large doses in the organisms of living beings and can negatively affect the functioning of the liver and kidneys.

Scientists referred to by the publication believe that the ban on UV-328 will be the first step to leave plastic packaging in the past. The proposal for such a ban was put forward by representatives of Sweden at the UN conference, now its regulatory bodies are discussing it.

According to the tabloid, industrial enterprises are dissatisfied with the prospect of such a ban and are right now fighting against the regulation of plastic components at the same level as it is done with other dangerous chemicals.
