Opposition party call for single-use plastics to be banned by next year

By  Oct 07, 2019

The Social Democratic Party (SDP) parliamentary group has submitted to the parliament amendments to the Act on Sustainable Waste Management proposing that plastic bags and single-use plastic products be banned as of the middle of 2020 already instead of as of 2021, as regulated by an EU directive.

This would lessen the negative impact of plastic products on the environment and human health and contribute to the establishment of a circular economy, the SDP said.

Social Democrat Mihael Zmajlovic told a news conference that the ban on single-use plastic products would significantly contribute to reducing the amount of waste and help Croatia become a clean country which lives predominantly off tourism.
