Polyethylene is NO! September 7, 2017, 12:19 pm

 In the Australian state of Queensland, a law was passed banning plastic bags.

"Every year, 2.4 billion containers for drinks and 1 billion plastic bags are used in Queensland ... they are on our water expanses, they kill and maim our local animals. By adopting this bill, we will signal our youth that we value our nature, "said Environment Minister Steven Miles, noting that one of the most passionate admirers of the adopted changes was children.

The bill was supported, both by the authorities and by the opposition. The ban on disposable plastic shopping bags, including biological bags, will take effect from the middle of next year. For its violation, a fine of $ 3,000 is foreseen.
