EU proposes plastic ban

in Business · 31-05-2018 14:01:00 · 0 Comments

The European Union has proposed banning plastic products like cotton buds, straws, stirs and balloon sticks in an attempt to reduce litter spoiling beaches and ocean beds.

The European Commission said its proposal would seek to cut marine litter in half for the ten most prominent items and avoid environmental damage estimated at over 200 billion euros over the next 12 years. The move comes after China said it would no longer be importing part of the EU’s waste.
