Assessing The Economic Impacts of a Potential Ban on Plastic Cutlery, Plates and Balloon Sticks

Single use plastics, including plastic plates, plastic cutlery and plastic balloon sticks may have significant negative impacts on the general environment when they are discarded after use. The Government wishes to assess what the economic impacts of introducing regulations banning these items in England would be and weighing these impacts against the resultant environmental benefits. Quotes are being invited from suitably experienced suppliers to undertake an assessment of the economic, environmental and social impacts of introducing a legislative ban in England. The assessment would take a look at 1) the impact on businesses, both domestic manufacturers and those that either use or sell them including imported plastics. and 2) the costs of using alternative materials for these products.
