Plastic Ban Vanuatu
State of Vanuatu, a small archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, with a population of 300,000 spread across 65 islands, is one of the first in the world to put into effect the single-use plastic ban since January 2018. This includes non-biodegradable plastic such as bags and polystyrene containers. Furthermore, they also proposed a ban on disposable nappies. In 2019, the state of Vanuatu went further with banning other single-use plastic items such as plates, cups, stirrers, food containers and egg cartons.
