Plastic recycling: Shoppers in England to pay more for plastic bottles
A great initiative and an incentive from the government. Statistics like over five trillion pieces of plastic filling the world’s oceans which can take years for it to break down paints a bleak picture. But an initiative like this is surely s step in the right direction. Already people who support the idea say the 5p cost put on single-plastic bags shows how well schemes like this can work – use is down 83%.
While the full details of this incentives are yet to be announced, we look forward to more incentives like this.
