Crackdown on single-use plastics

 

Sir, – Further to “EU announces crackdown on single-use and harmful plastics” (News, May 29th), presumably the plastic tags on political posters will in future be considered single-use plastic and be banned under the new EU rules? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – I wince when I see someone take a three-second sip of water from a disposable plastic cup that will take about 500 years to degrade. The move against single-use plastics is most welcome. – Yours, etc,
