New European legislation on single use plastics, also known as the EU Single Use Plastics Directive, is specifically aimed at reducing the amount of disposable plastic. The law bans the sale of certain single-use plastic items such as plastic straws, cutlery and plates. In addition, the law requires producers to contribute to the cost of cleaning up plastic waste. However, the law does not apply to reusable stand-up pouches. This means that stand-up pouches specifically designed for repeated use may still be sold and are not covered by this law. The legislation has been in force since 2023.
