zeer. the un envoy from libya has accused saudi arabia and at least nine other countries of meddling in libyan internal affairs the warning coincides with riyadh hosting the renegade libyan warlord honey for half tar the saudi foreign ministry says king solomon made assurances the have to add that the kingdom is keen on libya's security and stability. let you know how i see that that healthy libya that are about to come through and meddling in libya and working closely with the secretary general and i keep him post to do whatever information it received as a result of interference by dostoevsky requests to them in turn to advise the security council on this issue. the european parliament has voted to push through a ban on a range of single use plastics ten products including plastic plates straws cutlery and cotton buds will be prohibited across the e.u. by twenty twenty one the e.u. will also aims for ninety percent of plastic drink bottles to be collected for
recycling by twenty twenty nine and all bottles are seconds it consists of at least thirty percent recycled material by twenty thirty the european commission put forward the legislation last year after its research found that plastics made up eighty percent of europe's marine litter posing a major threat to its coastal biodiversity well for more on this let's speak the green technology expert sharon george she joins us now via skype from the english town of market rate and madam thank you so much for joining us here on out zero i guess you know for anyone who cares about the environment this is that from the a good first step from the european parliament this focus on the timings first of all i guess you know would always i'm presuming you wanted to be as soon as possible but how realistic are a lot of these that lines i mean it sounds an awful long way away but we're talking about changing the infrastructure in a way that businesses are doing as manufacturer and huge companies manufacturing.
billions of plastic bottles and you need to change those manufacturing processes and put those infrastructures and to get back costed back and then we process in the products is not going to happen. so it is quite it's quite an ambitious stare and it really calm soon are these things. is these plastics really. funny and they do need to be stopped as quickly as possible but i guess the key point is to use less and to produce less and obviously not not throw it in the ocean or be part of the environment recycling is a key issue as well but just in the past year china for example has said it will stop importing any plastic waste and a lot of third world countries are sort of thinking of that as well how ready is europe then when the a lot of the developed world when it comes to recycling it's all plastic but you can't just end the u.k. alone and the twelve months up to october twenty eighth in the u.k.
x forty six hundred eleven thousand tons of plastic for recycling and that that's just the u.k. and we've just found that all the inside clean systems were broken and we thought there recycling was you know we we were doing the right thing recycling the public recycle plastic it wasn't going to where we thought it was and is and in the back of the environment to be dumped in many cases and so there's recycling systems at the moment are broken and so we do desperately desperately need infrastructures and small business settle to to be recycled plastic in viable way so that the these things for doesn't happen in these the pollution can stop just the kind of you know go perhaps on a more optimistic direction do you think that this is worth celebrating not just that you know legal procedures are being put in place but that this really shows
that the social attitude is changing towards a certainly single use plastic oh absolutely i know and if you think how quickly this wave of couplets or. to to embrace change and to get rid of this kind of plastic is happened you know a court that in fact you just see those those emotive images coming out of blue. money and the pope and could really got behind these actors to do something good to make in situation back then and something having these changes it's going to really make a difference and you know it's like that their example i was he says it's like when it really we were in the back of the tub somebody had milk in the wall without turning tops and this move to go some way to at least slowly apps down. sharing georgia green technology expert madam thank you so much for sharing your expertise with us and let's just take you straight now out of the house of commons
