Finland received a Plastics Roadmad, which is the first step toward a new, sustainable plastic economy. The roadmap presents a set of key actions to find solutions to challenges caused by plastics. Finlands Plastics Roadmap is the first one of its kind and could well serve as a trendsetter for other countries

According to the working group prepared the Plastics Roadmap, plastics have lots of good properties, which is why they are used so much and they are important for the economy. However, there are also significant problems relating to plastics. In the roadmap, the working group presents solutions to respond to the plastic challenge and attract a broad spectrum of stakeholders to take action. To avoid littering and unnecessary consumption, local governments and organizers of various kinds of events are challenged to make sure that the events are litter-free, and voluntary green deals are suggested to reduce single-use packages and over-packaging.
