In July 2017, Zero Waste Montenegro has launched a national petition to request the Government to ban single-use plastic bags in Montenegro by the end of 2018. The collected signatures will be sent with an open letter to the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism presenting the negative impacts on health, environment, and tourism prone by the use of single use plastic bags. With the support of other NGO’s and organizations, Zero Waste will request our Government to follow the model of numerous other countries and ban plastic single-use bags.

Every day in Montenegro more than 1.000.000 single-use plastic bags are distributed and most of them discarded within less than 15 min. Those bags can last for hundreds of years in the nature, even biodegradable bags survive long enough in nature to harm livestock and wildlife, and consequently our food chain. Zero Waste Montenegro is calling citizen today to sign the petition to demand the government to ban single-use plastic bags in Montenegro:
