When will Western companies like #CocaCola and #Pepsi follow their lead?

Small Guatemalan village managed to get rid of plastic on its own


Before 2016, San Pedro La Laguna was drowning in plastic pollution that was threatening the fragile ecosystem of Lake Atitlán. The dire need for change crystallized when a solid waste disposal processing plant that was expected to manage a decade of waste was halfway full within six months, mostly with single-use plastics. Rather than build a larger plant—which would’ve been an enormous financial burden on the town and further polluted the lake with debris—Mayor Mauricio Méndez decided to implement a stringent municipal law to encourage lasting, sustainable change.

At least we're making slow progress as well; but unlike them, we have an entire economy that whines all the time when we try to tell them that it can't go on like this anymore because we're messing up our entire planet with this plastic crap. They're such some snowflakes, you cannot believe it.

Prohibition of one-way plastic products takes effect in #EU countries


First Vice-President Frans #Timmermans, responsible for sustainable development said: "I warmly welcome today's ambitious agreement reached on our Commission proposal to reduce single use plastics. This agreement truly helps protect our people and our planet. Europeans are conscious that plastic waste is an enormous problem and the EU as a whole has shown true courage in addressing it, making us the global leader in tackling plastic marine litter. Equally important is, that with the solutions agreed upon today, we are also driving a new circular business model and showing the way forward to putting our economy on a more sustainable path."

"If corporations’ profits were increased by using other types of packaging – or none at all – we would see a real change in the environmental impact of our waste... Living a sustainable life should not be a left-field choice for the elite, it should be the norm for us all. The onus is on political leaders to make it impossible to profit from manufacturing single-use plastics."
