Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL groups have warned there is a loop­hole in new rules pro­posed by the EU to tar­get plas­tic waste.

Re­think Plas­tic Al­liance said the def­i­ni­tion of a “sin­gle-use” poses risks in weak­en­ing the Bill.

They say it could al­low man­u­fac­tur­ers to claim a plas­tic bot­tle is re­us­able.
