The experts of the 10 kinds of bags: How they affect the environment

the EU's goal is that each and every person by the year 2025, only consumes the 40 plastic carrier bags, as compared with 102 bags per person, the figure is low in 2018 at the latest. The government has decided that the English of the customers from the 1st of may in the year are required to pay a plastskatt of the bags. This means that the carrier bags are going to cost you a dollar a piece, and the plastic bags for fruit and vegetables goes on for 30 cents apiece.

The new tax on financial transactions to generate strong feelings and emotions. Lena Lundberg, who is in charge of the plastråvarufrågor in the area of innovation and kemiindustrierna in Sweden, the IKEM, has warned that the result will be that carbon dioxide emissions would increase by 40 per cent. The forecast is based on the people in the place of plastic carrier bags from the sale, which is often re-used and end up being rubbish – will be replaced by the imported-waste-bags of fossil-based plastics.

There is also a study from the Danish equivalent of the Swedish environmental protection agency, which shows that plastic carrier bags will give the least environmental footprint and to be a tote bag in the organic cotton provides for a 20 000-fold greater environmental impact than a plastic bag.

However, the Danish study is not fully transferable to a Swedish context. English plastic carrier bags in the retail sector are, for example, is much better than the Danish one, " says Lena Lundberg.

She continues:
– Because there is so much interest in the minds of consumers to find out more about the variety of their environmental impact, should the government give a mandate to the environmental protection agency to make a similar assessment made in Denmark and based in sweden.

Åsa Stenmarck is a waste, and resursexpert at IVL Swedish environmental research institute Swedish environmental research institute and has been a government inquiry. She points out that the issue is a complex one, but it is, in her opinion, a good general rule is:

" The most important thing we can focus on the terms of the bags is to be sure to use the bags we have at home. Most people probably have several of them bomullspåsar, nylonkassar, paper bags and plastic bags,... We should focus on what we are putting in the bag when we're out shopping.
