In London, Queen Elizabeth II has decided to crack down on plastics used on the royal estate after meeting with environmental activist Sir David Attenborough.

The royal measures include a mandate that all to-go food packaging is biodegradable. Other changes include phasing out plastic straws in public cafes and staff dining rooms on the estate, as well as a ban on plastic water bottles. The estate includes Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and the Palace of Holyrood house in Edinburgh.

A Palace spokesman told the Express that the Queen had taken a “personal interest” in the reduction of plastic.  The royal residences affected include Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyrood house in Edinburgh. 

The Queen and Attenborough recently recorded a documentary about Commonwealth Canopy, a conservation product that looks to create a national park across the Commonwealth of Nations.
