Abstract

Ireland once paved the way for change when we cut our use of plastic bags drastically with the introduction of a plastic bag levy. But nearly two decades later, we are the top producer of plastic waste in Europe, generating an average of 61kg per person a year. It's not the sort of top 10 list you want to find yourself on, yet here we are, plastic bag-free, or not.
