The ban of disposable non compostable, non plant based, cups, straws, lids, coffee sleeves and cutlery will change the world. 

"Disposal data came from sources such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, PlasticsEurope, the World Bank, and the China Statistical Yearbook.

All three researchers on this study were part of a team that estimated in 2015that between 5 million and 13 million metric tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year. In this new study, the team said plastics are found in every major ocean basin in the world."

The ban of these items will reduce pollution and harm to wildlife. We will be providing a healthier future for generations to come.
