At a two-day workshop held at the City Hall of Trogir on June 28 and 29, the City of Trogir officially adopted the Action Plan for Reducing Plastic Pollution for 2021 - 2026, which includes the implementation of measures and activities to reduce the leakage of plastic waste into the environment.

He also pointed out that the City will continue to actively support all future project activities, including plastic free public events, as well as the implementation of measures and activities defined in the Action Plan across different segments of social life. The local community will be encouraged to adopt alternative solutions for plastics and continue developing sustainable tourism opportunities.

The director of Trogir Holding, Božidar Miše, confirmed that by the end of 2022, Trogir will implement a door-to-door waste management system in the pilot area of ​​the Plano settlement for a minimum of 200 households.

On the second day, a workshop was held for representatives of the city administration, public companies, cultural institutions and other stakeholders of the City of Trogir. On behalf of the Sunce Association, project manager Marin Spetič presented the Plastic Smart Cities project as well as For Plastic Free Croatian Islands.
