Plastic bags - live or let die
There is a very important movement now to reduce the amount of plastics used and subsequently thrown away and contaminating nature or our oceans.
In Sweden we are no longer given a plastic bag when we have made a purchase, but we are asked if we want to buy one. By this action the amount of plastic bags given out has radically decreased. Several Swedish retail chains, IKEA being one, has declared that they are going to reduce or even abandon disposable plastic products within a few years. Several industries will have to think over the product assortment and make changes to the production to follow on to these demands. A challange and an opportunity to become sustainable.
