Reduction of plastic use
Plastic pollution – especially the dramatic littering of the oceans – and the public concern about it, has powerfully brought the issue on the European and German political agenda. This background paper provides an overview of existing and new laws and initiatives regarding plastics in Germany and the EU.
The joint research project "Plastikbudget" is organizing citizen forums on four Saturdays in March, with the aim to work out citizens’ recommendations on the use of plastics. Everyone interested is warmly invited to join!
