From April 2020, plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds will be banned throughout England as a way to curb and reduce the amount of plastic pollution that is having a detrimental effect on our environment and is clogging up our rivers, oceans and seas.
We think that it’s a positive step in the right direction and acts as a strong statement in the battle against plastic waste that kills over 100,000 sea mammals and over one million wild birds each and every year.
