Plastic Action Plan

(Danish Government’s Plastic Action Plan 2020)

Too much plastic nowadays ends up in nature and in the incinerators. The plastic action plan “Plastics without waste” reinforces recycling and protects nature and the environment.

 

Plastic is a durable and inexpensive material that we cannot do without, but plastic is also a major pollution problem globally. The Plastic Action Plan will ensure that plastics are thoughtfully used and reused for new products.

Today we burn too much plastic, we have be much better at recycling it. We do not have endless resources at our disposal and there is no need to extract new resources when we can use the ones we already have.

Minister for the Environment and Food Jakob Ellemann-Jensen.
