''War on Plastic'' # France to hike cost of goods packaged in non-recycled plastic

"Declaring war on plastic is not enough. We need to transform the French economy," says the minister in charge.

France is going to increase the cost of products packaged in non-recycled plastic, saying the economy needs to be "transformed" if the "war on plastic" is to be won.
It also intends to cut the cost of products packaged in plastic that has been used before.
Taxes on rubbish buried in landfills will be increased, while levies on recycling plants will be reduced.
It is part of a pledge to use recycled plastic only by 2025, and to help tackle the proliferation of plastic in the world's oceans.
