Reciclaxe de bolsas de plásticoO 16 de abril, os eurodeputados votaron por medidas para reducir o uso de bolsas de plástico, incluíndo un obxectivo vinculante de reducir o uso nun 80% e as taxas obrigatorias para as bolsas.

Outras medidas das propostas inclúen o cobro obrigatorio das bolsas de plástico no sector alimentario e o aumento do uso de bolsas de plástico biodegradables sobre as bolsas convencionais.

Os eurodeputados conservadores, con todo, opuxéronse a algunhas das propostas, presentando emendas para debilitar a lexislación.

Linda McAvan MEP, Labour’s European spokesperson on the environment, said: “Labour MEPs today supported ambitious measures to crack down on plastic bag waste across Europe. Single-use plastic bags are only used for a few seconds, yet it takes hundreds of years for them to degrade, and many end up floating in our oceans and seas, poisoning wildlife.

“Only binding targets will do the job – we are delighted Tory plans to water these down were not accepted.

“We also voted to introduce a Europe-wide charge for single-use plastic bags in supermarkets and other food shops, bringing the rest of the EU in line with what the UK has already legislated to do.

“Wales sets a particularly good example for other countries: three years after bringing in a 5p charge for plastic bags at the check-out, the Welsh use fewer plastic bags than most other countries, and they have already met the 80% reduction target we voted for today.”
