The article aims at providing a first analysis of the European Strategy for Plastics, adopted by the European Commission in January 2018, and of Directive No. 2019/904 on the reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment, also known as ‘Single-Use Plastics Directive’, which was adopted on 5 June 2019. The main argument of this article is that, despite the important achievements of this Directive, which will be summarised following the five ‘Rs’ – reduction, restrictions, requirements, responsibility, recycling – this legal instrument does not grasp the complexity of the evolving debate on the human right to a healthy environment.
