Slovakia tops EU ranking in plastic waste

Slovakia is currently among the EU countries with the biggest use of plastic bags, which is why Slovakia’s Environment Ministry is encouraging the nation’s supermarket chains to replace single-use plastic bags with compostable alternatives. While in some EU countries, one inhabitant uses, on average, four to ten such bags per year, one inhabitant in Slovakia uses seven to eight plastic bags per day.

“Plastic bags are offered as a primary package for unwrapped groceries,” the press department of the ministry said, as quoted by the SITA newswire. “There are hygienic reasons for their use, but they could be fully replaced with compostable bags.”
