A new law has been passed in France which will see it become the first country to ban all plastic cups, plates and silverware.

The new regulations, which were passed this month, will see that all disposable cutlery will be made from biologically-sourced materials.

The fresh legislation is all part of the nation’s Energy Transition for Green Growth – a bold plan that aims to allow France make more headway in tackling climate change.

Businesses will have until 2020 to fully comply with the laws when they come into full effect.
