Plastics Bans Worldwide

This is a regularly updated list of bans of types of single-use plastics, sorted by type of entity (country, municipality, company, etc.).

EcoOptimism has addressed plastics issues a number of times, including here most recently. And with new developments, especially China’s decision to no longer accept plastic waste, restrictions and bans on single-use plastics are rapidly growing.

If you know of bans – existing or proposed –  that aren’t listed here (or corrections needed), please let me know via the contact link at the bottom of this page.

Note that when the spreadsheet loads, it doesn’t start at the top (don’t ask me why), so you need to scroll up and to the left. Or you can view the spreadsheet here.
