On the occasion of the International Plastic Bag Free Day on the 3rd July, Surfrider Foundation Europe launches the campaign #EnoughExcuses. The NGO reminds that the banning of single use plastic bags is the only way to counteract this environmental curse significantly and fast enough, and to partially prevent the plastic pollution of our oceans with plastic.
On the 14th of March, Members of the European Parliament in plenary session in Strasbourg adopted on first reading a marine litter reduction target in the framework of the review of the “waste package”, part of the European Commission measures to facilitate Europe’s transition to a circular economy. For Surfrider, it represents a major step forward in the fight against pollution of aquatic environments -especially rivers, seas, the ocean- and of our coasts.
