This is a great initiate, hope the rules applies everywhere!!

The fight against single-use plastic has been gathering steam over the past months, but the Caribbean nation of Dominica has taken the crusade to another level.
The island nation has announced its aim to completely ban common plastics and single-use Styrofoam cups and food containers -- effective January 2019.
Announcing this intention in June's budget address, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said his government wanted to help preserve Dominica's famously beautiful natural landscape.
"Dominica prides itself as the "Nature Isle". We must in every way deserve and reflect that designation," reads Skerrit's statement.
"The issue of solid waste management affects that perception and we continue to grapple with it."
