France Becomes First Country To Ban All Plastic Cups, Plates, Silverware

September 20, 2016

Following their ban of plastic bags in July, France has just become the first country to ban all plastic cups, plates and silverware. Manufacturers must comply by 2020, when all products must be made from "biologically sourced materials" and biodegradable. SKIN PLATES AND GOURD CUPS. But what will we use for forks and knives? "The carved bones of our enemies." I like you, you know that? I want to marry your sister so we can always be together.

Thanks to Matty, who already eats and drinks with his bare hands anyways because he cares about earth.

    This should really be enforced everywhere, on a wider spectrum of products.

    Whenever there's a ban, there's always a black market.

    This looks like a pretty profitable venture.

    maybe some small restourants will do that but the big chains like McDonalds are shure following this law, otherwise a huge shitstorm would rain down on them...

    lol I thought the French Banned McDonalds.

    France likes to ban everything.

    Good. With the advent of biodegradable plastic alternatives, there is no reason we should be using it on a global scale.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Biodegradable might mean "degrades in 6 months in landfill" or "degrades some time before the universe collapses into a giant singularity". So that word is unenforced and could be slapped on everything. Gold? Yep. Biodegradable. Diamonds? Biodegradable. Uranium? Yep.

    Ok, it's not quite that unenforced but nobody would stop you from putting teflon coated acrylic something on the shelf with a biodegradable sticker.

    My bad, I meant to say compostable, not biodegradable.

  • JesterCap

    Not silver but flatware or utensils

  • Dude, like, what if, we, like...made that shit, outta like, hemp?
