Government To Ban Single-Use Plastic Cutlery & Cups

The government has announced plans to ban single-use plastic cutlery, plates and cups in England as part of what it calls a “war on plastic”.

Ministers said the move would help to reduce litter and cut the amount of plastic waste in oceans. Ministers are also hoping to introduce measures under its Environment Bill to tackle plastic pollution – such as a deposit return scheme on plastic bottles to encourage recycling and a plastic packaging tax – but this new plan would be an additional tool.
