All 28 EU member states have backed a total ban on 3 neonicotinoid bee killing pesticides. Neonicotinoids or neonics have been implicated in the widespread death of bees around the world. The outcome is massive. It’s not just a global tipping point to save the bees- it bans the world’s most common insecticides, pressing industry to develop a whole new model of non-toxic agriculture!
The UK is set to ban all sales of single use plastics, including plastic straws and cotton swabs from the country as early as next year. Go UK!
France has become the first country in the world to ban disposable plastic cups, cutlery and plates. A new French law will require all disposable tableware to be made from 50% biologically sourced materials that can be composted at home by January 2020. The number will rise to 60% by January 2025. Bravo France!
I feel the brimming of new opportunities for a lot more and unique sustainable methods and materials.
