PLASTIC BAGS IN SOUTH AFRICA
What is happening to the plastic bag levy?
The US, with a population of just over 300 million, uses over 30 billion plastic bags annually. With a population one sixth that of the US, at just below 50 million, as well as legislation and a levy, one would think that South African usage would be far less. Shockingly, we get through 8 billion bags a year. The reasons are equally as shocking.
