Biodegradable, bio-based & compostable plastics can be 🌍 friendly if they match what science tells us.

Today’s proposal for new, impactful rules to tackle waste from packaging in Europe:

1) reduce packaging waste by 15% by 2040
2) boost its efficient reuse
3) make it all recyclable by 2030
4) reduce the need of fossil resources by using recycled plastics


Our choices, our 🌍 future!

Packaging is one of the main users of raw materials: 40% plastic & 50% paper is used for something we barely look at & throw away so easily!

Today’s 🇪🇺 proposals help us put an end to this.
