More and more countries are introducing policies to reduce or ban single-use plastic products, depending on their own circumstances. Disposable plastic products, which were invented to solve the problem of convenience, Seems to be on its way out?
UAE to ban single-use plastic from 2024
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will ban most single-use plastic products from 2024, according to Ministerial Resolution No. 380 of 2022, issued on 10 January 2023, the Biodegradable Materials Institute reports. The resolution states that the import, production or circulation of single-use plastic (including biodegradable plastic) shopping bags will be banned from 1 January 2024.
It is easy to point at plastic packaging to say the material is a problem, to get caught up in the good-bad debate that has been polarising public opinion and media commentary. In reality, when items are made from reusable and recyclable plastics and managed correctly, they provide us with sustainable, cost-efficient, and durable packaging solutions.
It may take years before single-use plastics are completely "eliminated" around the world. Reducing the use of single-use plastics is about protecting the environment and promoting sustainable development, so what if there was a way to continue using this convenient packaging product without harming the environment and saving resources?

WBBC products do not need to be recycled in special facilities. Instead, they can be recycled along with other paper products from recycling plants around the world. They are also more sustainable, plastic-free and environmentally friendly than other coating materials.
