Re: E-M:/ plastic bags

About 20 years ago, Australia switched to bio- and UV-degradable plastic bags, and that diminished the litter, especially around garbage dumps.

I believe the plastics that we use in these bags are banned in Europe, at least in N Europe. Their bags can be incinerated without generating dioxins, etc.
