The Single Use Plastics directive (most commonly referred to as the SUP), has already been approved by the EC and its on its way to all Member States. All EU Member States, will have to transpose and implement the SUP Directive into their national legislation by mid-2021!! ✌✌

COLLECTING MILK BOXES, PLASTIC GLASSES, AND NILON BAGS
📍 Have you heard of these speaking numbers? It is up to 1.8 MILLION TONS of #plastic given out from Vietnam each year (according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)). As much as 1,5 BILLION of used milk cartons every year (equivalent to 150,000 Tons) discarded in our country, while 100% of paper milk cartons can be #recycled into #useful materials and products. What’s next if the numbers keep increasing?
♻️ Fortunately, we still have many organizations that are trying to #collect and #recycle used milk boxes and plastic glasses daily. We also hope to add more roofs made by used milk boxes and get more useful recyclable things that seem to be trash.
♻️ We still are collecting #used_milk_boxes,#nilon_bags and #plastic_bottles at An Xanh 1958 - LearningHub Cafe. If you have any questions about the process of the collection, please comment below to we know and support you.
Besides, you can contact Mr. Nghia. He will transport them to the recycling factory to start their new life. Please contact him on this number: 0898 651 571.

Worse. As part of my oceanic plastics clean-up project at Tongareva Atoll ~ funded by Australian High Commission in Wellington ~ thank you ~ I'm making a poster on various health impacts (including ecosystem & biosphere levels). Only yesterday I read a study about persistent organic pollutants (POPs) accumulating in fish tissue ~ the real impacts are already going to be horrendous. My feeling is it's too late (Eriksen et al 2014 estimated 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean); (Jambeck et al 2015 report about 8 million tonnes added to the ocean each year). Homo plasticus !!! #plastic

All the mothers breast-feed, so toxicants are passed on to the suckling infants. More ...
