The Queen Has Prohibited This Household Item From Buckingham Palace And The World Has A Lot To Say About It

February 22, 2018

We are all familiar with the old saying, “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” This has become a life motto for many people all over the world. They like how things have always been done, and they have no desire or need for change. Generations tend to follow what has always been done without a second thought of altering things.

The Queen, however, has decided to make some changes and the world is taking notice. She tends to keep things as usual up until now. She became a big fan of David Attenborough, who is an English broadcaster and avid naturalist. Her research and familiarity with him and his way of doing things have now translated into how things are done in the Royal Palace.


The staff has always used disposable plasticware, such as plates, utensils, and straws, for certain occasions. The Queen recently made an order that this will no longer be permitted in the Palace. From now on, she will only allow the usage of china, glass, and recyclable paper products.

In the cafes, any takeout item will be replaced with a biodegradable alternative, and the usage of plastics will soon cease. Her reason for making this alteration is in efforts to lessen the pollution from the Palace. While it is one seemingly small step in the grand scale of things, one can only hope that since all eyes are on her, they, too, will want to follow suit in making a difference in the environmental impacts we make on the world.
