Senate bill to require buyback of plastics
MetadataShow full item record
The Senate plans to push legislation to require beverage manufacturers to buy back plastic bottles sold at supermarkets and retail and help reduce the country’s plastic pollution. The country, along with China, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam, produces half of the 8 million tons of plastic wastes that reach the world’s oceans and seas, Sen. Joel Villanueva said on Tuesday when he spoke at the Bocaue leg of “Refill Revolution.” “Little by little, we can do so much for our environment and we must strive to remove our country from the list of major contributors of plastic wastes being dumped into the world’s oceans,” he added.
