Answer: D

UN Environment (UNEP) launched Clean Seas (#CleanSeas on social media) in February 2017, with the aim of engaging governments, the general public and the private sector in the fight against marine plastic pollution.  

  • Over the next five years, we will address the root-cause of marine litter by targeting the production and consumption of non-recoverable and single-use plastic.  
  • To do this effectively, we need citizens to be aware, engaged and active in addressing the problem in their daily lives and beyond.
