Especially the knives, right?
DC: The European Commission proposed a ban on 10 plastic items that make up 70 percent of litter Monday in an attempt to clean up the oceans.
The Commission announced the proposal in a Monday press release, saying plastic cotton buds, cutlery, plates, straws, drink stirrers and sticks for balloons should all be banned. The ban wouldn’t be fully implemented until 2030, but by that time, the Commission estimates it will have costed businesses $3.5 billion, according to CNN Money. MORE
