It’s lovely to wake up to some good news and for a public figure to take a stand for the environment.  The Queen of England has banned plastic straws and bottles from all her castles and she owns 6 royal residences.  Her awareness of plastic pollution started with her friendship with David Attenborough, the maker of beautiful but sad nature documentaries.  The single use plastic ban applies to her royal household- only china, glass and compostable will be served.  Single use plastic will be gradually phased out at public cafes.
