Great to see the plastics issue making the headlines today!
Seems I am not alone in my quest to see a plastic free planet after all. Apparently 162,000 of us responded to this issue. Whilst it won't happen overnight it looks like the cogs are finally turning with the powers that be. Here in the UK it's being debated whether or not to tax manufacturers of non-recyclable plastic items such as single use cutlery, crisp packets, cling film and drinking straws. The consumer would end up paying more for these products but why would you when there are so many alternatives out there these days? It's being debated now in parliament and could potentially be rolled out in November's budget.
What are you thoughts?
