Plastic Bags May be Banned In Nuevo León
Plastic bags are one of the most common items in everyday life. They bring the convenience for us, but cause harm to the ecosystems. You may have heard or read somewhere that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s ocean, if these numbers continue to rise. Plastic bags can smother corals and other seabed communities. When plastic bags end up in our oceans, animals (including seals, dolphins and seabirds) can get tangled up in them.
The phenomenon has caused wide public concern in many places of world, like California and Hawaii have already banned plastic bags. The northern Mexico state of Nuevo León is on exception.
"We spent a year in Nuevo León promoting recycling, talking to state legislators and business people," he said. "Things were going well."
But in late March, the state Congress voted to ban plastic bags in all commercial establishments.
While the proposed legislation still has to be signed into law by Gov. Jaime (Bronco) Rodríguez Calderón, Hernández, a former president of Inboplasthas , has little doubt he will do it.
If Nuevo León's governor does sign the legislation into law, Monterrey will be the second major city in Mexico to ban plastic bags in commercial outlets after Querétaro, which banned them in August.
