Non-recyclable plastics causing local concerns

With California recently failing to pass legislation that would have banned the production or sale of any non-recyclable single-use containers in the state by 2030, local environmental activists are expressing concerns on plastics and the long term impact in the area. Wayne Kudick, chair of the Stella Maris Parish Creation Care Mission, says the problem is even greater with the makeup of the Door County landscape.

 

 

Kudick lists some of the other countries that are banning or taxing plastics worldwide.

 

 

Kudick adds that the plastic bag tax in the United Kingdom meant it produced six billion fewer bags in the first year reflecting an 83 percent reduction rate.  In the United States, California and Hawaii are the only two states that have banned disposable bags.
