La Mode Verte has been invited to the UK government’s Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) in Edinburgh to showcase the trailer for our film ’Plastic Shores‘. We interviewed Paul Davidson, WRAP’s special advisor for plastic matters, last year and it was he who invited us to the ‘Derelict Fishing Gear in the Marine Environment‘ conference on the 9th February, held in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland. According to the conference’s press release: ‘The event is an opportunity to hear from CETMAR (Centro Tecnologico del Mar) about the findings from their recently completed 3R Fish Project and also to help inform and shape any potential interventions Zero Waste Scotland can undertake to reduce waste and increase recycling in this area.’ LMV director Ed Scott-Clarke will attend the event to talk about the problems of marine debris with various experts on the subject. Scotland, along with Wales and the Republic of Ireland, are making progressive legislative steps towards reducing their plastic waste, something England is lagging far behind on. LMV’s work with Roz Savage in the run up to the Olympics, which will be done in parallel with other national campaigns about marine conservation and pollution, will hopefully help rectify this.
