The EU single-use plastics campaign

To raise awareness of the sustainable alternatives to single-use plastic products, on 5 June 2018 the European Commission launched a public communication campaign. It began on World Environment Day, which this year had the theme ”Beat Plastic Pollution”. The campaign focuses on the impact that different kinds of single-use plastics cause, highlighting sustainable, available and affordable alternatives that form the key to tackling the problem.

The campaign shines a spotlight on different categories of single-use plastics items , including cotton buds, carrier bags, coffee cups and their lids, straws, cutlery, lollipop sticks and sweet wrappers, and plastic bottles.
