NANNING - Non-degradable plastic products and disposable food containers, as well as fossil-fueled vehicles will be prohibited on Weizhou Island of South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

According to an ecological and environmental protection regulation passed by the regional legislature, the sale and use of plastic bags and plastic sheets used for agricultural purposes will be banned.

Except for vehicles already registered by individuals and departments, as well as vehicles that serve the public, like firetrucks, no other new fossil-fueled vehicles will be allowed on the island.

The ban, which aims to promote new energy vehicles and protect the island's ecosystem, will take effect on July 1.

Weizhou Island in the Beibu Gulf is the largest and youngest volcanic island in China. A national geological park was established on the island in 2004.
