No, but increase tax incentives for companies that make biodegradable products

Yes If we have easy access to properly disposing these products. But if we are just throwing them in the regular trash, the question is mute because they will not properly biodegrade

Yes, ban any single-use plastic, biodegradable is just greenwashing. Most of it disappears after months, and only in the right conditions.

No, but disposable products should be higher cost, and producing and purchasing biodegradable materials should have a higher incentive to purchase.

Tax imports and production of products and plastic packaging to cover recycling costs.

Ban if it isn’t compostable (biodegradable still means micro plastics)

@9348N3PGreen answered…5mos

Yes and move to compostable materials instead and eventually production of compostable materials using environmentally sustainable production methods

@93467TVGreen answered…5mos

No, increase population based awareness and funding for recycling of various goods

@933X72ZLiberal answered…5mos

Yes, except it should be provided for the members of the public that require them (people with disabilities)

@932G2CX answered…5mos

Make all disposable products compostable so they break down into the earth. Biodegradable just means it breaks up but may still be around for many years in small pieces which is still dangerous to the environment and wildlife.

Yes we should ban all of disposable products that are not made of at least 75% of biodegradable material however instead of using wood, paper, or cardboard like McDonald's, maybe we should use something like metal cutlery or some sort of alloy.
