France just banned all plastic plates, cups and utensils – NaturalNews.com


From Natural News:

France has now become the first country in the world to ban plates, cups and utensils that are made of plastic. While this move is long overdue, it’s important to note that the ban will not go into effect immediately. Instead, manufacturers will have until 2020 to get on board.

Replacements have to be formulated using compostable materials that have been biologically sourced. These actions will have a significant impact when they are instituted throughout France, with estimates placing the number of plastic cups that were thrown away in the country last year at 4.73 billion. Just 1 percent of these items are recycled.
