Excerpt: “More than a third of fruit and vegetable products in France are thought to be sold in plastic wrapping, and government officials believe that the ban could prevent a billion items of single use plastics being used every year.

In a statement announcing the new law, the Environment Ministry said that France uses an “outrageous amount” of single use plastics and that the new ban ‘aims at cutting back the use of throwaway plastic and boost its substitution by other materials or reusable and recyclable packaging’.”
