France plans to introduce a penalty system for consumer goods that are packaged with non-recycled plastic, an Environment Ministry official said in a newspaper interview on Sunday.

The French government has pledged to transition the country to recycling 100 percent of its plastic by 2025 to reduce the vast amount of plastic finding its way into oceans.
