No. This is restricting consumer freedom, which almost always backfires. It's also not clear whether the alternatives would be inherently better.

@947CYDMDemocrat from Arizona answered…4 days

No, but companies should increase their uses of biodegradable products

@946BJ72 from Indiana answered…6 days

Somewhat, we need to find a way to make these materials more compostable for the health of the planet.

@9469KVLGreen from Indiana answered…6 days

not banned but make more biodegradable ones and make them cheaper than the plastic

@945NZQL from Tennessee answered…1wk

If it’s not 100% biodegradable within a set time, it’s not biodegradable and companies should not be allowed to claim it’s biodegradable. No. Maybe provide incentives for truly biodegradable items.

@9457DY7 from Indiana answered…1wk

Should not be banned but companies should always be trying to figure out more ways to make their disposable products better for the environment as long as it does not affect the quality of the product too much

@944MJ7B from Florida answered…2wks

Yes, but only for corporations that produce a large amount of these products; increase consumer incentives to recycle the remaining products after the ban takes place

I think they shouldn't be banned, I might not like them but that does not give the government the right to ban them.

@9445J4W from Michigan answered…2wks

Yes, and add incentives for companies to make it a priority to create inexpensive biodegradable products.

@943ZFRT from Missouri answered…2wks

Ban single-use items and put deposits on products to encourage recycling

@943VBHM from New Jersey answered…2wks

Yes, but we should gradually work up to, and potentially beyond, 50%

@943N6MLLibertarian from Michigan answered…2wks

All plastics produced should either be recyclable or biodegradable.

we should do more research in how to get rid of it and turn it for good and not bury it or dump it in seas or other countrys

An all out ban is too drastic, and would change livelihoods. A gradual ban and incentivizing companies is better.

@93Z7DFP from Florida answered…3wks

no ban is necessary but instead slowly but surely increase the manufacturing of biodegradable products so we ease into using biodegradable products

@93Z6XQR from Minnesota answered…3wks

@93YY9Y7from Maine  answered…3wks

It’s hard as biodegradable items are very expensive. So make larger companies and businesses a compulsory requirement for this but allow smaller businesses to find suppliers with cheaper plastic products. We’ll support smaller business until they eventually grow and will no longer be allowed to buy from those suppliers.

In terms of general public ( going out to the shops to just simply buy) majority of plastic products should be banned. Most will be wooden or paper, and the few plastic products will be over 70% or more biodegradable materials

@93YTJG4Socialistfrom Maine  answered…3wks

Slowly rid society of its dependency on plastic for the environment.

@93YSLSK from New York answered…3wks

Yes, but only if elites with private jets have to adhere to these standards as well

@93YMPTM from Texas answered…3wks

We need to balance out disposable products and increase consumer incentives to recycle products. We also need stricter laws on dumping.

@93YJYDK from Texas answered…3wks

No, increase availability of domestic recycling instead of shipping our trash overseas.

@93YHQSC from Missouri answered…3wks

No. Increase tax incentives for companies that make biodegradable products. Increase consumer incentives to recycle these products instead. Ban all disposable products that are not made of at least 75% of biodegradable material

@93YH558Independent from Florida answered…3wks

Provide more recycling opportunities for the consumer (e.g. many housing communities do not provide access to recycling)

@93YH3PK from Washington answered…3wks

Reusable washable items only, even for eating out. How hard is it to carry your own glass and silverware? I keep some in my car for emergencies anyway!

@93Y592Ffrom Maine  answered…3wks

Yes, ban long lasting plastic on products that does not need long lasting plastic.

@93Y56J2from Maine  answered…3wks

Yes, but the burden of reducing climate change related effects should not be placed only on an average consumer, but instead the 100 multinational corporations that are to blame for 70% of all emissions contributing to global warming should be the ones to blame and should solve the issue they caused

@93Y4NLVfrom Guam  answered…3wks

@93XXVH2from Maine  answered…4wks

Yes, but make an exception for people who are disabled that need access to disposable plastic cutlery and straws

@93XWDJS from Texas answered…4wks

No, but require all businesses that use disposable products (plastic cups, plates, cutlery, etc) to be made of 50% biodegradable material or more.
