Sounds like Chester bypass.

I expect there are worse but it is a disgrace! I don’t believe it’s all come out of car windows either.

I think its pretty obvious to say we are heading for a Tax on Plastic, and rightly so if the money is used to dispose of plastic safely .I don't think any one would argue a 10%price increase on plastic products in order to know they will be disposed of with no environmental impact.

But then there is a big problem with microplastics, from our washing machines ect...cant see any answer to that other than make everything from hemp or cotton maybe?
