Bluewater founder and CEO calls for throwaway plastic bottle crack-down
Bluewater founder and CEO Bengt Rittri has called for an immediate global crackdown on single-use plastic bottles.
“Microplastics pollution caused in part by dumping of throwaway plastic bottles imperils the health of the planet and humanity,” said Mr. Rittri, a Swedish environmental entrepreneur. He noted how over one million single-use plastic bottles are produced every minute, with over 70 percent ending up as trash in landfill and oceans.
Mr. Ritrri’s call came on the back of a WHO study saying microplastics have been found
in almost every planetary source of water on the planet, from rivers and lakes, the
ocean, wastewater, and drinking water.
