Britain will announce the 2018 budget, and it is predicted that Chancellor George Auburns will take the opportunity to impose plastic packaging tax to reduce the consumption of disposable plastic supplies. For the electricity supplier, the most affected are foam packaging, plastic mailing bags and bubble mats.
The problem with plastic bags is that they are cheap, but usually disposable, and they cause a lot of waste and environmental pollution. In the Internet era, almost every day express arrives at people"s home, some customers may be more exotic packaging boxes or foam bags reserved for packaging Christmas gifts, but most of the courier bags of the end result is thrown into the dustbin.
Some green packaging supporters are optimistic about this move, which means that since 2015, Britain began to levy 5 pence plastic bag tax, so far the use of plastic bags decreased by 80%. Thus, if it is used in plastic bags will also have the same effect.
Greenpeace says: "we call on big companies to take action to reduce the use of plastic bags and stop producing too many disposable plastic bags. At the same time, we call on governments to take action to solve this problem by building a closed loop system to recycle and reuse materials rather than waste them."
But some small entrepreneurs are not optimistic, they think that disposable plastic packaging tax will increase the cost of the electricity supplier, and the cost is not harm to their interests, is to transform the pressure to the customer. Although there are other packing fillers, such as crumpled paper, it is usually not as convenient as bubble film, and less protective for fragile products than bubble film.
