Disposable tableware Q&A

Q: How should the general public cope with the policy restricting the use of plastic (Styrofoam) disposable tableware?

A: This policy restricts the use of plastic (Styrofoam) disposable tableware only, exclusive of the disposable tableware made of other material. Therefore, the enforcement of the policy will not produce significant impact on the public’s daily life. The public may cope with the policy in the following manners: (1) carrying their personal tableware; (2) using reusable tableware; (3) using non-plastic disposable tableware to decrease the quantity of the tableware wasted immediately after being used. It is believed that this policy will be helpful positively to the improvement of Taiwan’s long-term environmental quality.
