Banning plastic bags – local authorities’ guide
Developed by Surfrider Foundation Europe, this guide is aimed at local authorities that want to reduce the consumption of single-use plastic bags in their territories. By highlighting 20 best practices or initiatives in tackling plastic-bag pollution in different parts of the planet, the report intends to:
- guide municipalities engaged in reducing the consumption of single-use plastic bags;
- strengthen connections between local authorities, citizens, associations, and businesses that have implemented initiatives or wish to become involved;
- highlight and share the courageous and interesting experiences undertaken; and
- invite and convince other local authorities to ban disposable plastic bags.
It also gives ideas and advice for higher-level authorities, businesses, citizens, or groups that want to implement actions against single-use plastic bags.
