South Pacific Island Nation of 80 Islands, Plastic Ban
June 9, 2018 - 10:41 am

The South Pacific Island of Vanuatu has become the FIRST NATION in the world to ban plastic straws. The Vanuatu Council of Ministers has also banned the manufacturing and importing of single-use plastic bags.This impacts @80 islands. The council made its move after a study showed a large amount of plastic garbage had accumulated on the main island of Efate. (2018)
