US Attitudes to Single-Use Plastic Are Changing

In 2018, Seattle became the first major US city to ban single-use plastic straws. Malibu followed suit in June 2018, and a number of US cities and states have introduced – or plan to introduce – their own laws aimed at reducing straw waste.

California, New York, and hundreds of municipalities across the US have banned – or issue fines for – the use of plastic products.

This is a growing global trend. China plans to ban single-use straws in the restaurant industry by the end of 2020, while the likes of Vancouver, Taiwan, Rio de Janeiro and New Delhi have all enacted bans.

Consumers are actively purchasing sustainable products. Research by New York University found that sustainability-marketed products outperformed the growth of conventional products.
