Directive for the reduction of use of plastic mono-use shopping bags in the EU







The association was founded in April 2011.
It's first activity has been to present a national survey made to understand how italian citizens view the law banning non biodegradable shopping bags. Over 70% viewed the law favourably.
Further it has worked to pass the Italian law banning mono use plastic bags and to promote their substitution with compostable plastic bags. This law has so far lead to a significant reduction in the sale of mono use plastic bags.
