SEATTLE (Waste 360): The Single-Use Plastics Stakeholder Committee is recommending legislation to ban certain single-use plastics in the Cayman Islands. The legislation, which is slated to take effect in 2021, would ban items like single-use shopping bags, plastic straws, plastic stirrers, plastic cotton swabs and Styrofoam takeout containers, according to a report by Loop News.

This legislation, along with others up for consideration, would help the Cayman Islands reduce the 5,106 tonnes of plastic waste it generates annually.
