EU states agree to reduce consumption of lightweight plastic bags by 2025

25-Nov-14
Representatives of European Union (EU) member states have agreed to a deal to reduce consumption of lightweight plastic bags to 40 bags per person, per year by 2025, as per prw.com. National governments will have to either reduce average lightweight plastic bags consumption to 90 bags per person per year by 2019 and 40 by 2025 or ensure that, by 2018, all bags are charged for. A second unanimous vote was needed because the original agreement had been opposed by the European Commission, the EU’s executive. In response, European trade body PlasticsEurope said that it was concerned about the deal because it could create a precedent for banning specific packaging products. The organisation said however that it supported mandatory pricing for the bags and a ban on the use of oxo-biodegradable plastics in them.
