Tax Non-Biodegradable Plastic
Tax all raw plastic production and all products that are made of plastic.
Why is this important?
Plastic pollution is destroying our oceans and our air quality. Often companies that produce plastic products produce a greater amount of waste than they do their actual product with a total disregard for the environment.
The weight of plastic waste is often produced at a 50:50 ratio to product yield.
This is only the case because raw plastic is so cheap.
By introducing a non-biodegradable plastic tax, companies will be forced to explore alternatives to the current plastics on the market.
