PERUVIAN GOVERNMENT PASSES LAW TO PHASE OUT PLASTIC BAGS
On December 5, the Peruvian government unanimously passed a law prohibiting the manufacturing, importation, distribution, and consumption of single-use plastic bags. All single-use plastic bags, along with straws and other plastic products that cannot be recycled, will be phased out over the next three years. Peru joins more than 60 other countries that have imposed bans or taxes on single-use plastics. For the full story, see https://uk.reuters.com/article/us-peru-environment-plastic/peru-to-phas….
