Less plastic in the palace: Queen Elizabeth II announces new reform

Less plastic in the palace: Queen Elizabeth II announces new reform

"As part of that, we have taken a number of practical steps to cut back on the use of plastics", he said.

Having been unforgivably off the moral agenda for years, even for some people who consider themselves environmentalists, plastic is suddenly definitely on it. David Attenborough has a lot to do with this, with his scenes...

In addition, food packaging across all visitor cafes attached to Royal households will have be biodegradable.

Reportedly inspired by the work of nature documentarian Sir David Attenborough, the queen hopes the changes at the royal estate will help "tackle the issue" of rampant plastic pollution.

Eagles shed light on 'fake' Super Bowl walkthrough for Patriots

"It's making a real difference", May said of the bag fee.

Under the new plan, caterers at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland will also be restricted to using china plates and glasses or recyclable cups. Last year, Prince Charles helped launch a $2 million competition to stop the 8 million tons of plastics from entering our oceans each year, which Charles described as an "escalating ecological and human disaster".

Buckingham Palace is undergoing a 10-year renovation that will see it adopt greener, more efficient measures. "The fact that a recent study estimates that by 2025 there will be one tonne of plastic for every three tonnes of fish in the sea is not what I call encouraging".

Her Majesty has a few new eco-friendly decrees for monarchial palaces. Charles and Dame Ellen MacArthur teamed up to offer a million-dollar cash prize to anyone with a great idea for keeping garbage out of the ocean. Pretty rare that the Royal family is appearing more progressive than Parliament. This includes solar roof panels, ground source heat pumps, and an anaerobic digestion unit to generate biogas from organic waste, reports the UK Independent.
