Petition Summary  

The petitioner points out that many small products, such as biscuits or pastry, are wrapped in individual plastic bags that are then unnecessarily packed in a larger plastic bag. She argues that this practice runs contrary to the aim of Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste, namely to prevent the generation of packaging waste and to minimise the environmental impact of packaging. She believes that as long as these small items are not sold individually, they should not be wrapped in separate plastic packaging.
