Monaco Says No To Plastic Straws!

Monaco Says No To Plastic Straws!

From 1 January 2019, plastic drinking straws and stirrers are banned in Monaco!

 

In January 2020, the ban will be extended to cover single-use plastic plates, cups and cutlery. A number of establishments in the Principality committed to the move in 2018, by replacing plastic straws with biodegradable alternatives.

 

Plastic accounts for 95% of the waste on Mediterranean beaches, and plastic straws can be ingested by marine animals.
