The number of plastic items sold in the UK has soared in the last 10 years, and as the cost of plastic products has fallen, so too has the demand for sustainable materials.
Plastic has been a major issue in the country for decades.
In 2012, a report by the UN Environment Programme called plastic waste “the biggest environmental problem in the world”.
In 2016, the British government announced it was launching an investigation into the country’s waste.
The government said the government would investigate whether plastic bottles were contributing to the problem.
However, it was unclear if the investigation would be successful.
The UN report said that one in 10 tonnes of plastic could be recycled.
“In the UK, about two tonnes of bottles are produced each day, and one in four tonnes are thrown away,” said a spokesman for the government.
“This makes recycling a significant challenge.”
But the UK’s government is not alone.
In recent years, the number of recycled plastics has increased as demand has risen.
The country is now the world’s largest consumer of recycled plastic, with around two million tonnes of waste recycled, according to the UK government.
Plastic containers are now often stacked vertically in landfill sites in order to save space.
“We’ve got a large amount of plastic waste that is not recycled and so it’s a waste management issue,” said Emma Woodworth, the chief executive of UK Plastic Waste Management, a non-profit organisation.
“And we have a lot of plastic bags and bottles being thrown away.”
The organisation is now considering ways of storing the waste, including using it to produce bio-waste, which could be used to produce biodegradable products.
In December, the government introduced a plastic waste recycling scheme which will encourage recycling of plastic bottles, packaging, plastic bags, clothing and other plastic items.
It will also provide financial incentives to businesses that recycle plastic.
“Our business has been very active in the recycling sector, and the government is really taking an interest in it,” Woodworth said.
“It’s encouraging and the Government is really encouraging us.”
However, the waste from the plastic industry is still very much a global problem.
According to a report released by the Pew Charitable Trusts, the UK is one of only two countries in the OECD where plastic is a major source of CO2 emissions.
In the US, there are around 15 million tonnes, while China’s is about 13 million tonnes.
The report estimated that each plastic item in the United Kingdom contributes between 0.3 and 0.7 tonnes of CO 2 to the atmosphere, making it the world leader in plastic emissions.
The waste is also a major problem for countries that import plastic from China, which accounts for more than half of the world market for plastic.
In a report last year, Greenpeace said that China’s “continued high level of plastic importation has led to widespread waste in China and the world and resulted in massive losses for local communities”.
According to the report, more than 200 million tonnes are produced in China each year, making up between 7 and 10 percent of the countrys total plastic production.
In June, the UN issued a report stating that there were more plastic waste sites in China than any other country.
The Chinese government also has a policy of using landfill sites to dispose of plastic, and according to Greenpeace, the country has the highest landfill rate in the developed world.
A recent study by the environmental group found that almost half of China’s plastic waste is stored in the city of Shanghai.
However the report also highlighted that plastic waste was being transported in huge quantities through China’s cities and villages, leading to significant environmental impacts.
Plastic is used to make plastic bottles and other products in China, but the waste can be toxic.
In May, the World Health Organisation warned that plastics could contribute to lung cancer, diabetes and other serious health problems.
“The problem of plastic in China is a global one, and not just a problem in China,” said Sarah Stokes, an environmental specialist at the University of Reading.
“Plastic is a huge source of waste, and we are also seeing this worldwide.”
Plastic packaging, which is usually made from plastic bottles or other recyclable materials, is an important source of plastic for China.
However with the introduction of the Plastic Waste Reduction Scheme (PWRSP), the government has set an example for other countries.
In addition to recycling plastic, the scheme aims to reduce the amount of waste from domestic use.
It aims to encourage recycling and landfill reuse by ensuring that all waste is disposed of in landfills.
The scheme is part of the government’s “Waste Reduction Strategy 2020-2025”, and aims to create more than 1.5 million green jobs by 2020.
According, the strategy aims to “encourage reuse, recycle and landfill-free packaging” by 2020, with an additional 1.8 million jobs created
