- Paint Microplastic Emissions are one of the most important causes of Ocean Plastic Pollution, jeopardising Ocean Health and Biodiversity, and reducing the capacity of the Ocean to mitigate Climate Change.
We call on Regulators, and the Paint Industry to act now to stop Paint Microplastic Pollution.
There are proven, readily available solutions for Ocean Paint Microplastic Pollution, including Pinovo’s.
We are delighted that DG ENV in the EU Commission has started to investigate possible regulatory measures to support its objective of reducing Microplastic Emissions into the Environment by 30% by 2030.
But we also need the Paint Industry to educate it's customers on the risks to the Ocean of Mismanaged Paint at the time of application, maintenance, and the end-of-life of painted objects. It’s the Paint Industry's responsibility too!
Last, but not least, have a look at the stunning UN World Oceans Day video - https://lnkd.in/e86u3sr9. It tells you better than we can what we need to do, and why, to protect the Ocean on this #WorldOceansDay 2022!
