First plastic-free skiing area in world

Dishes, cups, bottles to be banned in Val di Pejo

(ANSA) - Trento, November 14 - The world's first plastic-free skiing area has been created in Italy, sources said Thursday.
    Plastic dishes, cups, single-use straws and bottles will be banned in the Val di Pejo north of Trento from the start of the winter skiing season, they said.
    The initiative was launched after a study by two Milan universities, the Statale and the Bicocca, found the equivalent of all the plastic particles in Europe's seas in a local glacier.
    The study found between 131 million and 162 million particles of plastic in the Forni Glacier.
