IT WAS AN ETHICAL ISSUE.
NOW IT IS AN ACT.
Every piece of plastic ever made still exists today.
The 7th Environment Action Programme sets the following priority objectives for waste policy in the EU:
To reduce the amount of waste generated
To maximise recycling and re-use
To limit incineration to non recyclable materials
To phase out landfilling to ony non-recyclable and non-recoverable waste
To ensure full implementation of the waste policy targets of all members
In 2017, the Commission will continue to deliver on the Circular Economy Action Plan.
This will include the presentation of a strategy for plastics in the circular economy, an assessment of
options for the improved interface between chemicals, products and waste legislation, a legislative proposal on water reuse and a monitoring framework on circular economy
Everyone influences planet’s healt. Everyone can make the difference.
We want to make it.
Faced with these scenarios, the possible solution strategies are those that involve the behaviour of every person.
Everyone can help to safeguard the health of the planet by trying to lengthen the life cycle of plastic, avoiding discarding it in the environment after a single use, and correctly recycling the waste.
And by businesses, by experimenting with innovative technologies that can optimize processes or create alternatives.
We have done this.
