Timor-Leste: strengthening the Covid-19 response and promoting plastic recycling

Non-biodegradable plastics are hugely damaging for the environment, especially the marine environment, and unless we take action there will soon be more plastic than fish in the ocean.

Andrew Jacobs, Ambassador of the European Union to Timor-Leste

To reduce waste and to continue to take economic benefit from plastics, we need to recycle whenever possible. This is what this innovative new circular economy initiative is all about – re-using the plastic in bottles and other containers for other purposes.
