BOX, Sweden, April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The EU Parliament on 27th March adopted the Directive on the reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment. The regulation is believed to be the most ambitious plan to combat plastic littering in the world.
Duni welcomes the regulation and the collaborative efforts for recycling and new eco-products that this will support. We share the very real concerns of plastic waste in our oceans. Duni is at heart a paper company, producing natural fiber-based articles for more than 70 years. 90% of our products are based on paper fiber.
