South Australia to ban single-use plastics in 2021


People's Daily Online, Sydney, September 10 According to Australian media reports, the Australian South Australian State Assembly passed a bill banning the use of single-use plastics on the 10th. But due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, the new regulations will be postponed to 2021.

SBS Broadcasting Corporation of Australia reported that South Australia will become the first state in Australia to ban the use of single-use plastic products. At that time, single-use plastic products such as straws, tableware, and beverage stirrers will be banned. People with disabilities or medical needs may be exempted. Since then, other plastic products will gradually be added to the banned list, and strive to eliminate the use of single-use plastic products in the next few years.

South Australia's Environment Minister David Spears said that the community and industry have provided strong support for the ban on single-use plastic products. Many families and businesses have already taken measures.

According to reports, South Australia has been at the forefront of the country in terms of plastic restrictions. In 2009, South Australia became the first state to ban the use of single-use plastic bags in supermarkets and retail stores.

With people’s environmental awareness increases, some non-degradable disposable plastic products will gradually be replaced with eco friendly disposable tableware. We can use paper straw to place the use of plastic straw, use sugarcane tableware (bagasse trays, bagasse containers, bagasse bowls and so on) or ther other paper products to replace single-use plastic tableware. To make our environment better.
