Eco-tax on plastic bags in Romania (Pre-waste Factsheet 94)

The main objective of the eco-tax on bags is to gather extra income for the Environmental Fund and at the same time to reduce the demand for plastic bags on the market. This is done by imposing a 0,2 RON (0.04 Euro) for each bag made from non-biodegradable materials that is introduced on the market.

The producer has to pay this sum for every bag introduced on the market, regardless of its size or quality. What matters is whether or not the bag is made from biodegradable materials.
