Plastic litter is a big problem affecting almost all countries in the world, which has led to demands from politicians and environmentalists to ban or tax plastic bags. However, there is no longer any need for this because when d2w® is included at the manufacturing stage, it converts everyday plastic products (made from PE, PP or PS) at the end of their useful life, into materials which are biodegradable in the open environment, in the same way as a leaf only quicker, leaving no toxic residues or fragments of plastic. d2w® oxo-biodegradable (controlled-life) plastic additive is the only product of this type to be awarded an internationally-recognised eco-label.
Plastic is the most effective material ever invented for protecting our food and other goods from damage and contamination. Don’t ban it, just add d2w.
Single use plastic bags use less energy and other resources, are less expensive, better for public health and result in fewer negative environmental impacts than alternative shopping bags – so say the Heartland Institute – http://www.bagtheban.com/assets/content/media/TruthAboutPlasticBags_web.pdf
