Levy may be imposed to cut plastic bag use in Hong Kong

People's Daily Online 05.22.07

Hong Kong's government may be urged to impose a levy on plastic bag use to save the city from plastic bag landfills as there are over 8 billion plastic shopping bags disposed yearly, according to the figure released May 21 by the environmental department. In a paper tabled to lawmakers May 21, the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department urged the legislative to agree to impose a levy to cut plastic bag use, adding a 50-cent levy could cut plastic bag use in Hong Kong by one billion.
