Plastic Produce Packaging Bans

France Has Announced a Plastic Packaging Ban for Fresh Items

— October 19, 2021 — Eco
It's commonplace to visits a grocery store or market and find fruits and vegetables wrapped in plastic, but a new plastic packaging ban is being implemented in France to help combat against the use of single-use plastics.

The French government has published a list of roughly 30 fruits and vegetables that will no longer be permitted to be packaged in plastic once the ban comes into effect starting on January 1, 2022. The ban comes after research estimates that 37% of fruits and vegetables are sold in plastic packaging that, once eliminated, could save more than one-billion unnecessary plastic packaging items each year.

The France ministry spoke on the plastic packaging ban in a statement cited by Reuters which said, "We use an outrageous amount of single-use plastic in our daily lives. The circular economy law aims at cutting back the use of throwaway plastic and boost its substitution by other materials or reusable and recyclable packaging."
