The petitioner calls for European legislation introducing a deposit system for cigarettes, tobacco products and e-cigarettes, indicating that a high enough deposit payment would act as an effective deterrent to the improper disposal of cigarette butts and other tobacco product residues. The petitioner fails to understand why the target reduction figure for discarded cigarette butts is only 80% by 2030, while drinking straws are to be banned altogether.

Thank you for your support, Eugen Hoppe-schultze
