Plastic straws, cotton buds and drink stirrers to be banned in England



Plastic straws , drink stirrers, and cotton buds with plastic stems will be illegal and to sell and use in England from next April, this has been confirmed by the government.
Big amounts of plastic straws , drink stirrers, and cotton buds, (particularly cotton buds), are flushed down toilets or throw in bins most of this end up in the sea  surveys show evidence that recently waterways across the UK have been ‘teeming with plastic’,and  putting wildlife at risk.
