PLASTIC ADDICT : Surfrider acts to eradicate plastic bags from our daily life.

At the time of the European week for waste reduction from 18th to 26th November 2017, Surfrider launches the campaign “PLASTIC ADDICT”, in order to raise awareness among citizens about the plastic bags use.

The goal of this new chapter in the Surfrider Foundation Campaign Ban the Bag is to incite shopkeepers as well as consumers to eradicate plastic bags, and to choose solutions respectful of the environment and the oceans. Let’s remind that the first chapter was to denounce the backwardness in terms of practice of the European Union members through the communication #EnoughExcuses, to say stop to wrong excuses.
