In accordance with a set of climate-focused promises made by former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s government during the 2019 Budget, Malta is meant to stop the importation of four single-use plastic products by 1st January 2021.

The four products are plastic bags, cutlery, straws, and plates.

This is the first phase of a plastic-free plan, which will eventually lead to a full-on ban on the sale and distribution of the aforementioned products from 2022.

Revealed in 2019’s Budget, the incentive follows the EU approving a similar ban earlier that year, which also ensures that plastic bottles be made of 90% recycled content by 2029.

Muscat had also said his two daughters were all his praise for his announcement that Malta will ban single-use plastics.

These promises were echoed by Prime Minister Robert Abela earlier this year.

In a Q&A event with at the Malta Chamber of Commerce’s headquarters in Valletta, Abela had reiterated plans to have the country become carbon neutral by 2050.
