The Welsh Youth Parliament’s Littering & Plastic Waste Committee are passionate about ensuring a marked difference in the litter and plastic waste issue affecting us.

During Welsh Youth Parliament week held between 13-17 of July 2020, Welsh Youth Parliament members were keen to share habits and practices with other young people that will have a lasting impact on the litter and plastic waste problem.

Here are some videos created by Surfers Against Sewage and SeaQuest. They discuss everyday tips and tricks you can use to lessen your impact on the environment, how plastic ends up on our beaches, what microplastics and microfibers are, and how young people can get in touch with them.
