Greenpeace aims for plastic bag ban

Greenpeace ha collected 50,000 signatures in 20 days in its campaign for a ban on single-use plastic bags, the environmental protection NGO announced on Wednesday.

Inspections have found plastic micro-particles in the Danube and Tisza rivers, Greenpeace underlined.

Signatories would like Hungary to ban plastic bags by 2020.

Romania decided a few months ago to ban these plastic bags from January 1, 2019. India will impose a ban from 2022.
