eBay UK has announced single-use plastics will be banned from being sold on the platform effective June 1, 2022
As you may be aware, Scotland has passed new laws banning environmentally damaging single-use plastic items.
This ban comes into effect on 1 June 2022. After this time it will be an offence to supply the following products on eBay:
- Plastic cutlery (forks, knives, spoons, chopsticks) plates, straws, beverage stirrers and balloon sticks
- Food containers made of expanded polystyrene
- Cups and other beverage containers made of expanded polystyrene, including their covers and lids
All sellers need to comply with this new legislation by reviewing their inventory and by removing non-compliant listings on eBay by 1 June 2022.
