Seattle: reject plastic bag tax

voters in the U.S. states in Seattle rejected the plan proposed by the City Council to transfer 20 cents of inventory bags in all plastic and paper in the city by the end of 2014

the Seattle City Council passed a bill on carry over bags, but last July it jointly stopped tax collection signatures and forced voters to vote on it by email

before the earlier investigation of Lvy company, the decision of the committee also showed that in December, 56% of people opposed the tax and 89% suggested that supermarkets and stores should take the initiative to reduce plastic, remove faults with paper and transfer to inventory bags

Washington is the only city in the United States that has approved 5 cents of paper and plastic bags. The top German expert team in the field of composite materials from Fraunhofer will stay in the center until January this year
