The Government is to bring forward plans to ban single-use plastics.
It's part of a range of measures set to be introduced, including putting fees on non-recyclable plastics and cutting dependence on landfill.
Environment Minister Richard Bruton is meeting with stakeholders to discuss how best to deliver the Climate Action Plan.
The Minister says the Government will be following through on an EU directive to ban single-use plastics by 2021.
He explained: "Single-use plastics are to be eliminated... no non-recyclable plastic by 2030.
"We've already banned [items like plastic knives and forks] since earlier this year in the public service, and I think that has been very warmly received by public servants - they've enthusiastically adopted it."
Minister Bruton also suggested the Government is considering new taxes to get people to change their behaviour when it comes to the environment.
He pointed to the success of the plastic bag levy - saying people have "completely changed" their habits.
