Single-use plastic is being phased out in many parts of the world. While the United States has seen many cities set up campaigns to get rid of them, an entire country is going to mandate its removal over the next decade. The Taiwanese government is going to be removing items like plastic straws, bags, and containers in multiple steps.

Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Agency will essentially be removing all single-use plastic by 2030. They’ll also be launching a number of marine clean-up programs to help get plastic pollution out of the waters. EPA minister Lee Ying-yuan told Taiwan Today that the best way to eliminate plastic waste is to cut things off at the source.
