The Swedish government announced the latest plastic reduction policy

The Swedish government announced the latest plastic reduction policy on February 21, 2022 local time, reducing the impact of plastics on the environment by increasing regulations such as increasing the recycling of recycled plastics and increasing green jobs.

Sweden's climate and environment minister, Annika Strandhll, introduced Sweden's first action plan for plastics disposal at a press conference, hoping that by 2030, there will be 30% is recyclable material. By 2026, consumption of single-use plastic cups and lunch boxes will be reduced by 50% compared to 2022.

The Swedish government says plans to use plastic sustainably are important for Sweden to reach its carbon-free 2045 goal.

From January 1, 2022, Sweden will ban the sale of disposable tableware with more than 15% plastic content, including foam plastic (Styrofoam) tableware.

Now many countries are slowly reducing the use of disposable plastic tableware. Reducing the use of single-use plastic tableware is an inevitable and necessary measure.

Many disposable plastic tableware is non-degradable or takes a long time to degrade completely, which is a huge damage to the environment on which we humans live. In addition to reducing or banning the use of these disposable plastic tableware, we can also use some disposable tableware that can be degraded by parasites. At present, the more common pulp tableware is bagasse tableware.

Disposable bagasse tableware from Shenglin Packaging is 100% biodegradable and compostable tableware. Bagasse food boxes, bagasse trays, bagasse bowls, bagasse cups can all replace the use of disposable plastic tableware and we can better protect our environment.
