China to phase out single-use plastic by end of 2020

Jan 20, 2020 12:13 IST

One of the biggest consumers of plastic in the world, China now aims to ban single-use in most of its cities by the end of 2020. Single-use straws, plastic utensils and packaging will be phased out. The policy was issued by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment along with the national development and reform commission. China's largest rubbish dump has reached its full capacity 25 years ahead of its schedule.
