Portuguese Retailers Promote Efficient Plastic Use
Portuguese retailers have pledged to promote the efficient use of plastic by reducing the use of disposable plastics and committing to the development of new materials.
An agreement signed between the Portuguese Association of Distribution Companies (APED) and the Portuguese Environmental Agency (APA) has put forward a platform for the development and testing of alternative solutions to disposable plastics, through partnerships with universities and research centres.
APED will cooperate in the implementation of a deposit system for non-reusable plastic beverage packaging and strengthen consumer communication actions to encourage behavioural change.
