Takeaway cups and ketchup packets could be banned in EU

Takeaway cups and ketchup packets could be banned in EU

The European Union could soon move to ban single use plastics which include small shampoo bottles in hotels, mayo or ketchup packets and even coffee takeaway cups. 

European Commissioners Frans Timmermans (Green Deal) and Virginijus Sinkevičius (Environment) made these proposals in a bill to reduce packaging waste, the NOS reports. 

The EC wants to ban cafes and coffee shops from using disposable cups when customers drink their beverage on site. The target date is 2040, with an aim of having 80% of takeaway cups being reusable by then. 

Disposable packaging won’t be allowed in restaurants and fast food chains if customers eat on the spot. Food and drink packaging are t be reusable and refillable more often. 

Meanwhile, beer sellers must sell 10% of their drinks in refillable bottles by 2030, and 20% by ten years later. this also includes a ban on fruit in foam trays covered with plastic. 

Other items being targeted are large delivery boxes containing small products and any material that remains after these changes must be as recyclable or degradable as possible. 

This plan should decrease packaging waste per EU resident by 15% in 2040 when compared to 2018. The bill still has to pass through the EP and the individual member states, and could take at least 3 years for implementation.

World’s most expensive cities to live in – Malta not in top 50

World’s most expensive cities to live in - Malta not in top 50

Various surveys have conducted research to find out which are the most expensive cities to live in across the world – and Malta is nowhere to be seen on any list. 

From a 2022 cost of living study conducted by Mercer, which compared the prices of housing, transportation, food, clothing and other essentials, a total of 55 cities were listed, with Hong Kong, China taking top spot.

The main reason the Chinese city topped the list was its over 7 million people living in it, with the competitive demand for housing sky-rocketing prices. 

In another study, the Worldwide Cost of Living Index, which was released by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), it was found that the average cost of living is up 8.1% in 2022. 

According to this list, New York and Singapore tied in top place, followed by Tel Aviv Israel. The EIU tracked everyday expenses in 172 cities around the world. Most of this is being owed to the Ukraine war and the pandemic’s consequences. 

A recent NSO report revealed that in Malta, 20.3% of the Maltese population was at risk of poverty and social exclusion. This year, the at risk of poverty threshold was calculated at €10,222.
