Plastic bags – Ending our addiction



Every year 100 billion plastic bags are used in the EU, around 200 bags for every EU citizen. Only a small percentage of these are recycled, meaning literally billions end in rubbish dumps or, more likely, European seas every year. This plastic pollution has a huge environmental impact, affecting not only marine ecosystems but also animal and even human health. In an engaging new Video News Release (VNR), viewers are presented with the environmental effects of the world’s plastic bag addiction and shown the imaginative solutions EU Member States are employing to tackle it.
