Lithuania is among the eight top recyclers of plastics in the EUEditorial Team
🇩🇪 Germany, 🇱🇹 Lithuania and 🇸🇮 Slovenia are among the eight top recyclers of plastics in the EU.
Stopping plastic pollution is our collective responsibility. That’s why we:
🍴 Ban 10 most single-use plastics
🥤 Reduce the use of plastic food containers and cups
📗 Raise awareness on clean-up, collection and waste treatment
🔎 Data based on Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.
Life moves so fast that we don’t always have the time to think about the impact of the small, daily choices we make – like using a take-away coffee cup with a plastic lid or accepting a straw with our drink.
43% of all marine litter polluting our oceans is made up of just 10 types of single-use plastic items; food containers, take-away beverage cups and lids, cotton buds, cutlery (including plates, stirrers and straws), balloons and balloon sticks, packets and wrappers, beverage bottles, cigarette butts, sanitary products, and carrier bags. As soon as we’re finished using these items, they often end up in the natural world; washed up on beaches or submerged in our oceans. This litter negatively impacts ecosystems, biodiversity – and even human health.
This can’t continue. We need to be ready to change the way we think about single-use plastic.
#ReadyToChange? Let’s work together towards increasing awareness about plastic waste and our transition towards a more sustainable, circular economy.
