Supplementary notes

*The source adds "On-the-go plastic items are those consumed while on the move in public spaces, rather than in the home or at cafes and restaurants

These estimates were obtained from a variety of data sources, including trade statistics and waste management, and scaled up where necessary to EU level using Gross Domestic Product Purchasing Power Parity (GDP PPP) (which takes into account spending power in different countries). The available data was scarce, and the estimates are on the conservative side."
