A petition restricting the use of plastic packaging in Luxembourg is close to hitting the threshold for triggering a parliament debate.
Launched in September by Philippe Paul, petition 1107 aims to communicate residents’ wish to “see the excessive use of plastic packaging for the general public reduced.”
Philippe suggests supermarket chains put customer comfort over social and environmental responsibility in their use of plastic packaging for fruit, vegetations and single-use gloves.
It comes after an earlier petition calling for the same goal, and published on change.org, garnered 14,000 signatures.
“It is indeed a question of contributing to the betterment of society by asking Parliament to legislate on the misuse of plastic packaging, because we are convinced that only imposed rules will make it possible to respect the environment more in our daily lives,” the petitioner wrote.
