Recommendations to Continue Taking Action on Plastic Pollution During Covid-19

  • Published on September 10, 2021

Main takeaways:
• Reduce touch points where indirect contact with an infected person can happen
• Remove unnecessary plastic packaging and items to reduce touch points
• Single-use plastic items and packaging are not sanitization measures in themselves
• Every single use-plastic packaging/item should be properly sanitized

• Make only the necessary plastic items accessible and available to the guests (or available upon request) to avoid unnecessary sanitization
