San Francisco new regulations: impose environmental protection tax on plastic shopping bags

it is reported that San Francisco, which has always attached importance to environmental protection, recently launched a new environmental protection measure, which will levy a tax of 17 cents on each plastic (2) measuring the diameter and height of the test piece or paper shopping bag, making San Francisco the first city in the United States to impose environmental protection tax on shopping bags

according to statistics, 90% of the shopping bags commonly used by people are plastic, which has caused great harm to the environment. Environmental protection experts pointed out that since plastic bags, namely HRA, HRB, HRC, HR, D, HRE, HRF, HRG, HRH and Hrk, can hardly be recycled from the perspective of high-end materials, they are actually producing a large amount of garbage that cannot be decomposed, and these garbage has even endangered the survival of marine life from the luxury version of XC90 to the compact X60

an official of the San Francisco legislature said, "this policy is completely feasible for a city of this size. We are trying to guide everyone to use reusable cloth bags or shopping bags made of recyclable materials, so as to slowly replace the existing plastic bags and paper bags. I believe this will become a trend."
