Molenbeek’s municipal council approves a “zero-plastic” motion


Molenbeek’s municipal council approved on Wednesday a “zero plastic” motion, which provides a detailed plan of action to combat plastic use.

In particular, a municipality-run “eco-team” will be responsible for creating and enforcing a charter of good practices for plastic use, with particular emphasis placed upon the elimination of “single-use” plastics.

The team is also tasked with raising awareness among the general public and businesses of the environmental impact of plastic use.
