In the battle against plastic pollution, Spain has zeroed in on a new target — the plastic used to wrap fruits and vegetables in the supermarket. Plastic-wrapped produce will be banned in the country beginning in 2023, according to a decree currently being drafted by the Ministry for Ecological Transition.
Plastic packaging in Spain generates 1.6 million tonnes (approximately 1.8 million tons) of plastic waste every year, according to Ministry of Ecological Transition. Less than half of that is ever recycled.
