Swedish retail firm Ikea says it will stop selling single-use plastic products by 2020.
It says the ban will apply across all its global stores.
Ikea says in future, it will design products to be able to be repaired, resold or recycled.
Its move follows hard on the heels of an announcement by the European Union that it plans to ban plastic items including straws, cotton buds, cutlery, balloon sticks and drink stirrers.
Single-use plastics can be very damaging to marine life.
