Geneva impose fines for the use of disposable plastic

From January 1, 2020 the second largest city in Switzerland will impose fines on disposable plastic products. The offender will be fined with 100 francs.

Geneva has been preparing for a new life since January 1, 2020 – it bans the issuance of free disposable polyethylene bags at the cash, the ban also applies to plastic cups, plates, cocktail jars and squeezing sticks. Those who break the law will fill the city budget with 100 francs (more than $100), according to the portal The Local.

The city government has informed all trade organizations of Geneva about the initiative.
These measures are only part of their main plan, which aims to reduce waste by 25% by 2024.

In March 2019, the European Parliament passed a bill that by 2021, Europe will completely abandon disposable plastic items. Also, by 2029, EU countries are going to ensure that 90% of the plastic bottles used are collected, and by 2025, at least a quarter (25%) of them will have to be produced from recycled raw materials.
