Environmentalists gather in South Africa to stem plastic waste | app

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Environmental activists are meeting in South Africa this week to pressure governments and businesses to reduce plastic production because it harms the continent’s environment.

The conference, “Towards Zero Plastic in Africa’s Seas”, being held in Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth), South Africa, until Friday, brings together academics and experts from the plastics industry and its effects on the continent, according to the organisers.
