The EU says NO plastic!

The European Parliament voted to ban the sale and use of disposable plastic products that can be replaced by others. 571 MEPs were against the ban, and 34 abstained from votes. According to the latest European Union regulation, the list of banned products includes: plastic straws, disposable cutlery, plastic plates, ear sticks, plastic shopping bags, fast food containers. The EU’s decision is an important step towards protecting the environment, especially since now plastic products account for about 70% of marine waste, which has serious consequences for our health.
