France has become the first country in the world to ban all plastic crockery and cutlery, taking a monumental step towards environment conservation.
The ban will come into effect from 2020, after which all disposable plates, bowls, cups, cutlery and other utensils will have to be made of plant-based and domestically decomposable material. It's part of the Energy Transition For Green Growth Bill that
France passed in 2015.
