That’s How Much Plastic Europeans Use

The corona pandemic illustrates the problem in a sustainable way: plastic boxes for to-go food, disposable protection against infections, packaging waste for online orders – the European Environment Agency EEA is sounding the alarm and warns to rethink.
 
At least in some places, the consequences of the immense plastic consumption for the environment seem to have arrived. There are now numerous initiatives in which plastics are to be dispensed with – for example shops in which the goods are sold unpacked.
 
But despite the growing climate and environmental awareness of many Europeans, too many plastics are still produced and consumed. This is the opinion of the European Environment Agency (EEA) in a new report . Due to pictures of protective masks in European waters and large amounts of disposable protective equipment, awareness of plastic waste in the corona pandemic has increased. Nevertheless, plastics are still too often used as single-use products and thrown away. A change is now needed to a circular and sustainable approach to plastic use, which can help curb the impact of these materials on the climate and the environment, they say.

The challenges of plastic pollution

The best way to deal with the whole thing is to switch to a fundamentally sustainable and circular plastics economy, in which the materials are reused and recycled much smarter and better. In addition, the production of plastics from renewable raw materials should be a starting point.
