Taiwan introduces one of the world’s most comprehensive plastic bansPosted on March 13, 2019 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Taiwan introduced one of the world’s most comprehensive plastic bans to begin between now and 2030. Say goodbye to single-use straws, cups, bags and utensils.
Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) Minister Ying-Yuan Lee announced the new policy at a press conference last month. “”We aim to implement a blanket ban by 2030 to significantly reduce plastic waste that pollutes the ocean and also gets into the food chain to affect human health,” said Ying-Yuan Lee.
Great initiative, but 2030 is still a long way off. A lot of plastic will still get dumped in that time. Why not faster?
