Plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds to be banned from next year
Plastic straws, drink stirrers and cotton buds will be banned in England from next year as part of a government plan to tackle pollution and protect the environment. A ban on the supply of the items will start in April 2020, Environmental Secretary Michael Gove confirmed after a consultation revealed “overwhelming” support for the move. Exemptions will allow those who need to use plastic straws for medical reasons or a disability to buy them from registered pharmacies or request them in restaurants, pubs and bars.
