No, re-evaluate plastics/bio-degradable material impact on environment - e.g. replacing single use plastic bags with woven bags has negative impacts on the environment, especially since many people actually used sing-use bags for secondary purposes.
No, instead of banning these materials Vanders and manufacturers and product developers should be incentivised to manage the full life cycle of the materials they use in their products. Reclaiming, re-using or recycling these materials. Tesla is doing this with the lithium for the car batteries and have established it is way cheaper to do this than to mine new lithium.
It is useless having biodegradable materials until commercial hot compost is made available across New Zealand. As it stands many cafes now have Biodegradable cups which cannot be composted in most households and whose lining mean they can't even be recycled so they all end up in landfill where they are even more harmful than a regular cup as they break into tiny pieces
