International Plastic Bag Free Day

International Plastic Bag Free Day is celebrated every year on July 3 to create awareness of the adverse effects of the use of a single plastic bag on the environment.

This day is celebrated to remind communities, organizations, and people worldwide to avoid the use of plastic bags in their daily use. Plastic bags take hundreds of years to decompose, endanger wildlife, and increase pollution which eventually disrupts the natural flow of the ecosystem. Read more at: (Copyright © BQ Prime).

We are glad to support this initiative by participating in the project BALTIPLAST which brings technological solutions to help public authorities reduce plastic waste and trigger investments in sustainable sorting and recycling. Project is focusing on single use plastic reduction, improvements in plastic packaging and innovative collection and treatment systems at the municipality level. A consortium of partners from Germany, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania will test concrete solutions at three levels of operation.
