France Bans Single-Use Plasticware

September 21 2016

France recently announced that it will bid adieu to single-use plastic utensils and dishware with a ban on the products starting in 2020. Once the law goes into effect, the only disposable dishware and cutlery that will be legal are compostable products made from biological sources.

Earlier in the year, France banned plastic bags thanks to the Energy Transition for Green Growth Act, the same act that makes the ban on single-use plasticware possible.
