Debate and adoption in plenary of Parliament’s position on reducing the environmental impact of certain plastic products

Plastic straws

The Parliament is urging for a ban of single-use plastic items such as plates, cutlery, straws, balloon sticks or cotton buds, in its recently adopted report prepared by Belgian Liberal Frederique Ries. The proposed legislation is likely to contribute, to a large extent, to the reduction of plastic pollution in seas and oceans, as well as to protect human and animal health.
