The Greek government has put forward a massive bill aimed at phasing out single-use plastics by 2021 and implementing stricter environmental standards based on EU recommendations and regulations. Public consultations on the bill will be held until 18 September, prior to its adoption.

The bill introduced by the government is far more ambitious than a simple single-use plastics ban. Instead, it envisions sweeping changes to the use of plastics in general that are meant to protect Greece’s nature and marine life and will allow the environment to heal.
