The European Union has set out clear guidelines on circular economies and the reduction of plastic products. Indeed, Directive (EU) 2019/904 promotes an approach that gives priority to sustainable, reusable products and systems rather than to single-use products. It is our duty as a civilization to reduce the manufacturing of plastics made from fossil fuels—we especially owe it to future generations. And it will help us to achieve “Goal 12” of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. According to data published by the European Commission, this new EU directive will lead to significant environmental and economic benefits: for example, it will avoid the emission of 3.5 million tons of CO2 equivalent, avoid environmental damage that would cost the equivalent of €22 billion by 2030, and save consumers a projected €6.5 billion.
