The EU approved a ban on single-use plastics

Plastic straws, plastic cotton buds, plastic stirrers... These single-use plastic items will be banned in the European Union by 2021.

    Full of shit mate just like here in Australia, no more SINGLE use plastic bags for FREE but available to buy them as many as you want and none of them biodegradable, back to glass jars and bottles too hard for our society to swallow, I remember the time when I have to give back two empty glass bottles and 6 jars to get my MILK and Yogurt and the collection centers where you could sell yours recycling paper and glass

    Europe should just ban themselves to the stone age so they'll zero emissions

    Good, America needs to do the same. Why don’t they make biodegradable products from hemp?

    We need to exercise pressure on Asian countries to take the same attitude, otherwise we´re fucked anyway!

    Why not all. How about an immediate ban on non recyclable plastics and maybe some kick backs for recycling firms? This is great but it’s not nearly enough and probably a bit late.
