Mexico City Joins Global Plastic Waste Reduction Commitment

Mexico City authorities have signed a commitment to reduce plastic waste as part of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).

Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum signed the Global Commitment for the New Plastic Economy agreement on Tuesday. The U.N. global initiative was launched in 2018 to encourage the private sector, businesses and other organizations to unite “behind a common vision of a circular economy for plastic in which it never becomes waste or pollution,” according to UNEP.
