Starting in January 2022, over 30 fruits and vegetables will be sold without plastic packaging in France to cut back on the use of throwaway plastic and boost the substitution of reusable or recyclable plastic for produce.

The packaging ban is part of a multi-year program to phase out plastics from multiple sectors by 2040. The ban ranges from banning plastic cutlery and utensils in restaurants to requiring public spaces to provide water fountains to reduce the use of plastic bottles. Learn more.
