and a prosperous year ahead
In a sudden development, our neighbour and prominent EU member, France, has banned synthetic plastic cups and cutlery from every corner of France. This new ruling has made it mandatory for plastic cups to be sourced from biological sources.
The law, which comes into effect in 2020, is part of the Energy Transition for Green Growth – an ambitious plan that aims to allow France to make a more effective contribution to tackling climate change.
Although many experts are claiming this to be a violation of EU trade law and free movement of goods within EU, and although many environmentalists are favouring tis ban, the packaing industry organisation, Pack2Go Europe, a Brussels-based organisation representing European packaging manufacturers, says it will keep fighting the new law and hopes it doesn't spread to the rest of the continent.
For them this is not just a ban, it also sends a wrong message, now people would start thinking that littering biodegradable paper cups and bio plastics is ok since they are biodegradable.
We think, this probably is a step in the right direction, and more and more paper cups and bio plastic coated paper cups should be brought into circulation, paper cups sourced from sustainable forest resources and coated with bio-plastics do not pollute, there is no risk of BPA contamination, and they indeed are compostable.
This is a step in the right direction we must admit. Let's move towards paper an bio plastic Deli Cups and Deli containers.
