In recent years, there has been a wave of plastic bans around the world! In 2020, the European Parliament passed a bill with a high vote: a total ban on disposable plastic products! The EU produces 25 million tons of plastic waste each year, only one-tenth of which is recycled. Many animals die from eating plastic. According to reports, the ban will be officially implemented in 2021, and plastic tableware, cotton swabs, plastic straws, etc., will all be banned!
