Emilia Romagna Region is plannig to free its territory from plastic

Emilia Romagna Region set a plan to free the regional territory from disposable plastic: in a progressive way, thanks to funds and incentives, businesses and workers will be plastic free.

Crockery, cutlery and bottles, large and small. Disposable plastic whose use, now so massive, Emilia-Romagna wants to drastically reduce and overcome. With the aim of gradually moving to only alternative and environmentally friendly materials. The only exception is the medical-health devices.

"PlasticFreER" is the Plan of the Region approved by the Regional Government for a strategy shared with public bodies, SMEs, entrerprises, associations and scientific communities to free from disposable plastic offices, canteens, festivals and parties and clean up public spaces, rivers, sea and beaches.

Productive activities that will choose to reconvert their production and will decide to get rid of plastic in their business will be rewarded. The plan foresees 15 actions for an increasingly circular and sustainable economy.
