Let's face it, we all know pollution is a pain for cities. Besides the fact that litter is an eyesore, there are a lot of problems that stem from pollution like the higher taxes that are needed to pay for clean up efforts. For these reasons and more, eliminating pollution is appealing to many cities in the United States. Many cities across the U.S. are trying to resolve the problem by targeting one of the main offenders; single-use plastic bags.
There are a variety of ways a city or municipality can go about pollution reduction. The number of disposable plastic bag bans and fees being implemented is rising rapidly in the U.S., but how is a city to know which solution is the best for them? New research shows U.S. cities how to manage plastic pollution reduction.
