Non-degradable plastic products and disposable food containers, as well as fossil-fueled vehicles will be prohibited on Weizhou Island off south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

According to an ecological and environmental protection regulation passed by the regional legislature, the sale and use of plastic bags and plastic sheets used for agricultural purposes will be banned.

Except for vehicles already registered by individuals and departments, as well as vehicles that serve the public, like firetrucks, no other new fossil-fueled vehicles will be allowed on the island.

The ban, which aims to promote new energy vehicles and protect the island's ecosystem, will take effect on July 1.

Weizhou Island in the Beibu Gulf is the largest and youngest volcanic island in China. A national geological park was established on the island in 2004.(source: Xinhua News Agency)

A far more effective method (to make a good impression on the general public...) would be to ban plastic, petrol and cars in a big city such as Shanghai, Guangzhou or CHongqing...

Sinophobic , those against CPC and Chinese people should be sent to the island too, and deport them every year.

Didn't Shenzhen just replace All their taxi's and buses to electric

Some 16,000 + electric buses ply the roads of Shenzhen .
   This puts Shenzhen ahead of not only Beijing, Hangzhou and Nanjing, but also Paris, Oslo and London, and will earn the city the dis­tinc­tion of becoming the first in the world to have an all-electric public bus fleet.
   

ohh, and wait... Shenzhen now has more than 13,000 e-taxis, known as blue taxis, and will complete the switch of 7,500 fossil-fueled vehicles - red taxis - to electricity by year's end under a revised action plan.

And Guangzhou and Zhuhai are following suit as we speak. So? I will give them a gold medal if they shut down the coal-fired power stations that currently feed their grid with electricity.
