A law banning plastic packaging for some fruits and vegetables in France went into effect on Jan. 1

Why not in America? “Thirty types of fruits and vegetables – including cucumbers, carrots, apples, and bananas – will no longer be allowed to be wrapped in plastic, with only packages of over 1.5kg receiving exemptions. Chopped or processed fruits will also be exempted, and providers of some fruits, like raspberries or cherry tomatoes, will get more time to find a plastic alternative for packaging. All plastic packaging for fruits and vegetables will be phased out in France by 2026.”
