Germany to ban single use plastics by 2021

I'm a bit skeptical about this, but what do you think? Possible? Realistic? A worthy goal or not?

Terrible article, by the way. I mean the writing is just awful. And it explains very little from a practical perspective about alternatives to single-use plastics.

I'm not sure if saran wrap is included in the definition. I assume it means things like plastic shopping bags, any kind of plastic packaging, plastic straws and eating utensils.

Here's an article that explains better:
