Plastic ban on beaches

Recommended Posts

I've just read in The Times that Puglia is banning the sale of single use plastic cups, plates, straws, etc on beaches this summer.  Hope they also ban their use on the beach and the beaches end up a bit cleaner as a result.  It doesn't say if this is throughout Puglia or just a certain area.  Step forward though.

Read that too flying pigs, and saw also that in Capri they are fining people for using plastic bags! Thought at first this might have more to do with the Bella Figura but it looks like a serious effort to stop plastic getting into the sea which is always a good thing.

I read it too.  I hope they take it seriously although on the beach cleaning projects I've been to the waste is predominantly created by the fishermen discarding the plastic nets for mussels, followed by Crocs which I would happily see banned, then flip flops and plastic bottles.
