Open Letter from Rethink Plastic to the European Commission

10 July 2017

Rethink Plastic - a new European alliance to cut plastic use, of which Friends of the Earth Europe is a member - has sent an open letter to the European Commission calling on them to propose strong and harmonised EU legislation within the EU Strategy on Plastics – due to be published at the end of 2017. Copies of this letter have been sent to Vice-Presidents Timmermans and Katainen, and Environment Commissioner Vella. We call for concrete policy action on reducing, redesigning and better managing plastics, and challenge the Commission to think broader and bolder, including trying to live plastic free for a day. #RethinkPlastic!
