On 24 June 2020 Deutsche Welle reported: The German Cabinet agreed on Wednesday [24 June] to end the sale of single-use plastic straws, cotton buds, and food containers from July next year, bringing it in line with a European Union directive intended to reduce the amount of plastic waste. The move means the sale of single-use cutlery, plates, stirring sticks, and balloon holders, as well as polystyrene cups and boxes, will be banned from July 3, 2021. Up to 20 percent of trash collected in parks and other public spaces in Germany consists of single-use plastic, primarily polystyrene containers. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
