Global Plastics Matrix

We question our global addiction to  a series of  single-use plastic items.  With the  Plastic Regulation Matrix, politicians, regulators and activists can  orient themselves concerning current bans and taxes in one quick overview, thus fast track national and international initiatives. The matrix displays different types plastic laws put in place around the globe. By sharing this tool, we hope to show that strict regulations are possible and encourage more law enforced initiatives to kick our plastic habits. This matrix is a guideline to how we can implement global plastic legislations and we urge you to use it to fight for change in your local community! Legislations are sorted by national and regional enforcement, and by year. Click in on the countries to learn more about their laws against plastic. For any updates on regulations, please contact:
