Should we all be banning plastic cups, plates and cutlery?

France has recently passed a law, which will see the banning of the use of plastic plates, cups and cutlery from 2020. A French politician has called for the banned to be carried out across Europe.

 

Arash Derambarsh is a French councillor who has previously successfully passed a law banning supermarkets from throwing away unsold food. He believes that ‘this problem of recycling exists in all European countries. We have to pass the same laws in all European countries to tackle this very important problem of waste.’

 

The new law is part of France’s Energy Transition for Green Growth Act, which will ban the use of plastic bags in grocery shops and markets. French President Francois Hollande said the ban is part of a larger push to make France ‘an exemplary nation in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, diversifying its energy model and increasing the deployment of renewable energy sources.’
