EU rules on single-use plastics: Commission guidance approved

On 31 May 2021, the European Commission presented its guidance on the EU rules on single-use plastics. These rules aim to reduce marine litter from single-use plastic products and fishing gear and promote the transition to a circular economy.

Beginning on 3 July 2021, Member States must ensure that single-use plastic products for which affordable plastic-free alternatives exist are no longer available on the EU market.

Different rules will apply to other plastic products (e.g., single-use plastic bags, beverage and food containers for immediate consumption, and more) such as limiting their use, reducing their consumption and preventing littering.

HOTREC continues to share best practices with its members on ways to reduce the consumption of plastic food containers.
