Este estudio, encargado por el Departamento Temático de Derechos de los Ciudadanos y Asuntos Constitucionales del Parlamento Europeo a petición de la Comisión de Peticiones (PETI), se centra en el uso generalizado de plásticos y revisa el consenso creciente respecto a los posibles impactos ecotoxicológicos de estos materiales, en especial de las partículas plásticas más pequeñas, denominadas microplásticos. Se examinan posibles estrategias de mitigación encaminadas a reducir la prevalencia de los (micro)plásticos, así como las alternativas emergentes y su idoneidad medioambiental. En los últimos años, debido al impulso generado por una concienciación cada vez mayor respecto a los impactos de los plásticos y por la opinión pública, se han propuesto y ejecutado multitud de normas, reglamentos, leyes y recomendaciones. Estas varían enormemente en las distintas escalas local, nacional, regional e internacional, y no está claro cuáles son los efectos beneficiosos de estas herramientas. En este estudio se evalúan estos instrumentos existentes, se analiza si se basan en datos científicos sólidos, y se examinan los retos previsibles que podrían limitar la pertinencia e idoneidad de las propuestas legislativas presentes y futuras.
