After campaigning by Oceana and our allies, a new law in Peru will reduce the use of plastics and plastic pollution. Peru’s Congress passed legislation that bans the use of plastic bags and restricts other single-use plastics (including straws). The measures also prohibit the use of plastics in Peru’s beaches, coast and the country’s many protected areas.
