An initiative of the liberationist Ronny Monge was presented to the secretariat of the legislative board, this seeks that in a period of five years the businesses and companies of Costa Rica change the packaging and plastic packaging for some of the recycling material. Failure to comply with these measures could be fined.
If the law were approved, 3 categories would be established according to the pollution (high, medium and low) that would generate the packaging and accordingly a tax would apply.
Plastic is one of the most important pollutants of the planet, we must avoid the use of earthquake since it takes about hundreds of years to get rid of, to degrade and the process to recycle it also contaminates.
Plastics are manufactured primarily from oil and gas.
It affects the wildlife because the birds are trapped until they reach death and there are animals that eat them confusing them for food.
About 200 different species of marine life, including whales, dolphins, seals, and turtles, die from plastic bags.
Garbage is generated by streets, beaches, seas, lakes, forests, and pollutants in the air.
Therefore, we greatly support this initiative, which will definitely improve the quality of life for our future generations.
