PLASTIC FREE BALEARICS - DISTINCTION FOR THE HORECA SECTOR
Plastic Free Balearics is a certification that facilitates the reduction of single-use plastics to companies in the HORECA sector throughout the Balearic Territory.
PFB certification is an environmental quality assurance seal that helps businesses not only comply with the Waste and Contaminated Soils Act and European directives but to go much further.
It offers useful tools through which you can identify honest alternatives to single-use plastic products, such as straws and other packaging, and learn about reusable options to eliminate and/or reduce waste.
The certification has a version called Plastic Free Guardians, in which 1 to 5 stars are given to participating companies, according to their commitments in reducing the use of single-use plastics and their renewal will be annual.
All the stars have a common criterion, to comply with the Law of Waste and Contaminated Soils of the Balearic Islands. In addition, a set of products labeled as Red Flag are added and that, despite not being prohibited, have a very high impact on the environment. Another requirement that will have to be met is the elimination or replacement by alternatives that do not include bioplastics.
