Taiwan sets timeline to ban single-use plastics.

Civil organizations including Taiwan Environmental Information Association, the Society of Wilderness, Kuroshio Ocean Education Foundation, Citizen Foundation of Ocean, Wild at Heart Legal Defense Association, and Tse-Xin Organic Agriculture Foundation are inviting the international community to support the petition calling for a ban of four types of single-use plastics introduced by the Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration (EPA). Its goal is to help protect the forest, ocean and wetland from discarded plastic.

Under the Marine Waste Management Platform established by the EPA along with eight civic environmental organizations, 34 action plans are introduced. Especially, starting in 2020, plastic straws and disposable utensils will be banned from food and beverage establishments for in-store use. In 2025, a price system is to be implemented and consumers need to pay extra for the use of four types of single-use plastics, i.e. plastic straws, cups, shopping bags and utensils. In 2030, a complete ban on these uses will be imposed.

The four plastic items are most commonly used nationwide. They account for the majority of the country’s marine litter collected by civil organizations during coastal clean-up. In order for the ban to take effect successfully, we are inviting Taiwanese citizens to support the plastics-free plan and hope that it will reinforce the government’s determination and receive the support of the legislators.

Taiwan Environmental Information Association secretary-general Chen Juei-pin said, “as civil environmental groups, we support entirely the Taiwan government’s plans to reduce the use of plastic product. However, we also worry the plans may falter due to its potential impact on related industries and customer buying behavior. For that reason, we are calling on the local and international communities to sign the petition and demand the Taiwan government to stick to the timelines. We would also like to urge other governments to join the ranks and help stop plastic pollution from entering the oceans and harming marine life.”
