The EU referendum and the environment: what next?


It’s no secret that there’s been a lot of lies, tall tales, and misinformation from both sides of the EU debate.

Whether that’s in regards to Hitler, World War Three, or whether non-EU members are more successful at Eurovision, it’s quite hard to say what is true, what clearly isn’t, or what is (or isn’t) plainly absurd.

But one topic that has many people intrigued, is whether or not an exit from the EU will have an impact on the British environment.

Although the topic isn’t quite as controversial as many of the others, like immigration, or bendy bananas, it is something that gets a lot of people talking – and so it should.

Here at Commercial Waste, we’ve inspected arguments from both sides, and have placed some of the main points in the graphic below.
