Queen Elizabeth II declares war on plastic | GBRI

The reigning monarch of UK, Queen Elizabeth II, has declared war — not on any country but on a substance that is threatening the lives of millions of creatures across the globe. The Queen has banned plastic straws and bottles from the Royal estates and is planning to phase-out single use plastics from public cafes and staff dining rooms.

Buckingham Palace outlined new waste plans and said there was a ‘strong desire to tackle the issue’ at the highest levels of the Royal household.

It is thought that the Queen became personally interested in the problem of plastic after working with Sir David Attenborough on a conservation documentary dealing with wildlife in the Commonwealth.
