Sweden: Choose the right carrier bag

Plastic littering is one of the biggest threats to biodiversity in the ocean. Larger plastic particles cause various types of damage to mammals and birds. Microparticles of plastics can be absorbed into aquatic organisms and thus enter the food value chain. In 2015, the European Commission decided that all Member States should significantly reduce the consumption of thin plastic carrier bags to get out of this problem. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has investigated and proposed how Sweden and its citizens could reduce the use of plastic carrier bags in line with the EC Directive. It is important to choose the right carrier bag. Consumers should ask for a paper carrier bag whenever they forget their own carrier bag at home!
