12/20/2018 European agreement on single-use plastics

On 19 December 2018, the European Parliament and the Council approved the European Commission’s “Single-use plastics” proposal: a series of measures to reduce marine litter. They aim to ban certain products containing plastic, such as cotton buds or straws, and also include labelling requirements to indicate the harmful effects of the product on the environment for certain others, including, for the cosmetics sector, wet wipes. Once this agreement has been formally approved, a Directive will be published and EU Member States will have to transpose it into national law within two years.
