MEPs, academics, campaigners and green groups argue in an open letter that Covid-19 recovery is an opportunity to create a circular economy.

Green MP Caroline Lucas and Labour’s Barry Gardiner joined executives from Plastics International, The Seahorse Trust, Fidra, Born Free Foundation, and the Forum for the Future to sign today’s open letter, which was coordinated by campaign group the Real Circularity Coalition.
