Costa Rica to ban single-use plastics by 2021

Costa Rica, home to six percent of the world’s biodiversity, is leading the way in the race to slow global warming as it aims to be the world’s first single-use plastic and carbon-free country by 2021. The country now has a National Strategy to replace single-use plastics with biodegradable alternatives. This plastic ban follows the country’s announcement from nearly a decade ago, which pledged that by 2021, (Costa Rica’s 200th year of independence,) it would be carbon neutral. For a country to be carbon-neutral, it has to remove as much carbon from the environment as it puts into it.
