According to a draft legislative proposal, European Union chiefs are looking to ban party items with a one-use function to cut pollution caused by plastics damaging the environment, including oceans and beaches.

A further document underpinning the proposed move points out that “readily available alternatives” could be used in place of the banned items.

Some great plans here if they can pull them off.
