China Enacts Massive, Speedy Single-Use Plastics Ban

Within a relatively short timespan, historically speaking, China outpaced the U.S. in manufacturing--and paid a heavy environmental price. But now it appears they're addressing that issue, and are subsequently poised to dwarf us in another area. Surprisingly, that area is sustainability.New policies laid out by China's National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment are determined to phase out single-use plastics, with an ambitious timeline that would be ju...

China's plan is more ambitious than I thought; the Chinese government is even tackling plastic packaging for shipping--including plastic shipping tape!--by choking it off at postal delive...

But Boston has steadily expanded in ambition and reputation, and avoided the labor unrest that has h...
