Comment on: Rogerson queried on biodegrable bags
Good to see that representations to the Committee had been taken on board.
Agree that DEFRA are over complicating matters. DEFRA's own research came out positively for single use carrier bags. If DEFRA want to reduce use, then tax them - but there is no need for the 'bio exemption'.
Comment on: China closed to plastics market
Wasn't this inevitable? We've certainly been predicting this for some time and it has happened before.
Surely, this is yet another wakeup call that we shouldn't be exporting our waste plastics?. We have to develop an indigenous plastics recycling capability within the UK which can not only handle & reprocess the material, but also develop marketplaces for it too.
