Extra-terrestrial monkey interviews Commissioner Potočnik

Mission, Possible II: help humans save the Earth

Captain Busta, a blue space monkey from the Intergalactic Wastebuster Federation (IWF), accompanied by four 10-year old school children from the UK arrived today, 4 May, at the PlasticsEurope/Wastebuster stand at the 2014 Green Week in Brussels to interview Dr Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment in the special mission to save planet Earth. 

On his mission to reduce waste, the charismatic extra-terrestrial creature met this morning Dr Potočnik to find out what actions is he under taking to protect the environment and how he is  planning to reduce plastics waste.

"My friends and I are thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet Commissioner Potočnik. His willingness to meet and discuss with us is a testimony of the commitment of the leaders of humanity to fight against littering. It has certainly helped us understand the progress made to save planet Earth”, said Captain Busta, after the interview. 

The I.W.F monitors planets for their waste generation and resource efficiency. As Earth is on the 'Endangered Planet' list, Captain Busta, joined by private Pong, has been sent to help by communicating messages that promote waste reduction.

PlasticsEurope in partnership with Wastebuster, an UK educational charity, seek to teach children all over Europe todays’ environment challenges and how to develop appropriate behaviours towards a sustainable future while using current resources. 

Representatives of PlasticsEurope and Wastebuster are on stand 33 at Green Week all day on Wednesday, 4 June and Thursday 5 June, 2014.
