PLASTIC BAGS FORBIDDEN IN CHINA

They did it!!  Plastic bags are forbidden in China by law.  Since June 1st all supermarkets and drugstores wont give free plastic bags.  Every plastic bag less thatn 0.025mm cant be produced, sold or used.  If the customers want plastic bags they will have to buy them or use fabric bags that are encouraged by the goverment.

       CHINA PLASTIC BAGS PROBLEM

Plastic waste has become one of China's biggest environmental and health problems.  According to the China Plastic Recycle Comitee, every single day 1000 million plastic bags are used for groceries and 2000 million bags are used for other purposes.  For example, Shangai produces 190 thousand TM of plastic waste, 7% of all the city waste.  And it will take 200 years to dissapear.

         PLASTIC BAGS CHINA

The enviromental problems by this are very serious ones, considering that plastic bags are made from oil and has a negative impact for the natural resources and has become a major health problem.  Thats why China is taken now care of the problem giving very wise solutions and strict control.

Its a very good start.
