England’s single-use plastics ban does not tackle takeaway boxes, warns Greenpeace
BBC Business says A ban on single-use plastic cutlery, plates and polystyrene trays comes into force in England on Sunday.
The new rules do not apply to plastic plates, trays and bowls used to pre-package food in shops and takeaways.
Environmental campaigners say the ban does not go far enough to cut plastic waste, while some businesses told the BBC they were unaware of the new rules.
The government said it was the “next big step” in its “journey to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste by 2042”.
