The EU Commission wants to reduce packaging waste by 15 percent by 2040
Individually wrapped fruit and vegetables, packages that are half made up of packaging, coffee-to-go cups – the EU Commission wants this to end soon. She wants to significantly reduce packaging waste, but has received criticism.
According to the will of the EU Commission, there will be no way around reusable or recycling in the future. Packaging waste in Europe is to be significantly reduced by 2040 - per country and per capita by 15 percent compared to 2018, the EU Commission announced on Wednesday in Brussels. By 2030, all packaging should be completely recyclable. The proposal still needs to be agreed with EU countries and the EU Parliament.
