Inspired by their own Blue Planet II series and its host, David Attenborough, the BBC news, and media company has pledged to ban all single-use plastics over the next 3 years. The phased approach will kick off this year with a ban on plastic cups and utensils followed by a ban on plastic containers next year.  "Like millions of people watching Blue Planet II, I was shocked to see the avoidable waste and harm created by single-use plastic,” said Tony Hall, director general of the BBC. “We all need to do our bit to tackle this problem, and I want the BBC to lead the way."

The BBC's announcement follows a recent commitment by UK Prime Minister to end plastic waste in the UK by 2042. The EU has launched a similar initiative to ensure all plastic packaging is either reusable or recyclable by 2030.
