    The Brussels municipality of Molenbeek approved the creation of a special body to steer the local administration away from single-use plastics and into the adoption of zero-waste policies, according to reports.

    Local authorities on Wednesday approved the creation of an “eco-team,” which would be led by the town councillor for ecology, according to BX1.

    The body would be charged with creating a charter for the adoption of greener, plastic-free habits which would be implemented within the local administration.

    Additionally, the ad-hoc team would also provide guidance and encourage organisers of public events to adopt a zero-plastic mentality, and it would also seek to work with local merchants, shop and supermarket owners to phase out single-use plastics.
