Abstract：As plastic has brought about the serious pollution of the earth environment, countries and organizations around the world have issued plastic bans one after another. This paper reviews these plastic bans and concludes their shortcomings, i.e., more policy guidance but less specific guidance on feasible operation, more stress on prohibition of plastic products use but less support for the research and development of alternative technology, and more ban but less publicity which fails to really change people's attitude towards plastics. In the background of these plastic bans, finding environmentally friendly plastic substitutes has become a major task that needs to be solved urgently. The excellent properties of bamboo, like fast growth, easy regeneration, green and low-carbon property and complete natural degradation, make it stand out from a range of alternative materials. In this sense, it is necessary to develop bamboo products to reduce the use of plastics so as to reduce the plastic pollution of the environment.
