When it comes to sorting and recycling plastic waste, France has some catching up to do. Less than 25% of plastic packaging is recycled, while the rest is incinerated or put in landfills.
That’s lower than in other European countries, where over 30% of plastic waste is recycled on average.
French authorities are now taking steps to improve waste collection itself. By simplifying the rules, France hopes to boost recycling.
And officials have set the bar high, promising that 100% of plastics will be recycled by 2025.
It might be a very optimistic plan, but let’s hope it will be achieved. In the meantime, visit our eco tips and find lots of new ways to help improve recycling in your area! Easy! 😉
