EU is close to banning all single use plastic

Plastic is an epidemic in the oceans and it’s showing up in our own feces, indicating we are ingesting it with unknown impacts. The European Union is about to finalize their ban on all single use plastics. They’re focusing on products often found in the sea for which there are good alternatives (like plastic cutlery and straws). They’re also pushing manufacturers to take more responsibility, for example, by expecting 90% of water bottles to be recycled by 2025.
