In Russia, they want to reduce the consumption of plastic
The Ministry of Natural Resources of the country proposes to gradually abandon the use of plastic bags and plastic utensils. They intend to reduce consumption by 10-20% per year.
Head of the Ministry of Environment Dmitry Kobylkin called the use of plastic one of the main environmental problems. The author of the initiative noted that modern technologies make it possible to produce packages and disposable dishes from decomposable polymers.
However, at the moment plastic is one of the cheapest materials, for its production are people who may lose their jobs. Therefore, the program of non-use is planned to be phased.
