For immediate release: Brussels, 02/05/18 New tax on non-recycled plastic packaging waste will fail to address the plastic pollution crisis Press Contact: Roberta Arbinolo, Communications Officer, Zero Waste Europe / Rethink Plastic
At Zero Waste Europe, we believe that plastic pollution is a big problem. That is why we have come together with over 1,000 groups and civil society organisations around the world, to form the #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement to tackle the problem at the source.
Our common values of environmental protection and social justice unite us in our efforts to take on the key global polluters and create a world free from plastic pollution.
We work at both the global level with #BreakFreeFromPlastic members in Europe, the Mediterranean, and beyond and at the policy level within Europe as Rethink Plastic, an alliance of European nongovernmental organisation’s (NGO) coming together to end plastic pollution.
