    Maybe we’ll take the plastic from the US. Free of charge. Just one thing though. Your president….he needs to go…

    It was only a short term benefit. I’m glad they’re rejecting now. Other western countries should follow the EU and ban plastic.

    No joke people will have to stop making new products. People will have to use what’s already here at some point, this point, it’s getting full!!

    fair enough – western nations DO need to be responsible for their own waste
    so do Asian nations! they need to clean up their rivers in particular – pouring waste & plastic into the seas

    Would it be difficult to start businesses in America to handle recycling? Could it be used as a way to provide unskilled labor work to people that need it?

    I’m a recycling fanatic and it’s sad to hear this. A lot of Asian countries like Japan actually have a system to recycle their stuff. America needs to restart their program like theirs.
