@joe-shmo saidIf you cannot fathom how taxing something undesirable
How does a tax solve the plastic problem? If it isn't such a ridiculously large percentage as to curb usage, then how does it solve the problem? Or is your goal to impose such a large tax?
is beneficial you need to go back to school. It is akin to
pricing something out of the market.
Now for a world problem that means all, or most, countries
acting together. If all countries taxed plastics you would soon
see a change.
In NZ there is an entrepreneur who has devised a way of turning
"snot rock" (a fresh-water pest) into a bio-degradeable plastic
substitute. Should not we encourage that?
