“How can we reduce plastic waste from takeaways?”

The Prince’s Government has set itself the target of achieving zero single-use plastic waste by 2030. A dedicated action plan includes a series of progressive bans targeting the disposable plastic items that are most often found in the natural environment and which can be easily replaced: bags, straws, coffee stirrers, cups, etc.

With each regulatory deadline, the Government offers a support programme for the main stakeholders who are affected.

Remember the 2016 Bag for Life campaign to cut down on overuse of plastic bags? Every household in the Principality received an organic cloth bag – a simple, eco-friendly alternative. That same year, the Department of the Environment launched the Responsible Trading certification to support traders in their environmental transition.

A ban on disposable tableware was introduced on 1 January 2020. To help traders and restaurant owners make the right choices, the Department of the Environment has created factsheets specifying permitted materials and recommended practices. You can find out more about these right here in this newsletter... And in a similar vein, the new Responsible Restaurant individual support programme has been launched.

 Are you a trader who would like to get involved in the effort to reduce the use of single-use plastic packaging?
