France becomes the first country to ban plastic plates and cutlery | The Independent

This is an interesting article in the Independent. It reports that France has apparently become the first country in the world to ban plastic plates, cups and utensils, passing a law that will go into effect in 2020. Exceptions will be allowed for items made of compostable, biosourced materials. The new law is a part of the country’s Energy Transition for Green Growth Act, the same legislation that also outlawed plastic bags in grocery stores and markets beginning in July.

As a passionate environmentalist, I welcome this initiative.
