Confirmation on the ban of single-use plastic in Wales
The Welsh Government has confirmed of the plan to ban single-use plastic. Plastic straws, cotton buds and balloon sticks are among the items which will be banned to use and sale from 2021.
With the UK Government's legislation currently making its way through parliament, a ban on plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds in England is set to come into force next month.
But the Welsh measures are set to go further, focusing on a longer list of single-use plastics.
