P10 buwis kada plastik pinag-aaralan

By: - 12/06/2018

PINAG-AARALAN na ng Kamara de Representantes ang panukala na patawan ng P10 excise tax ang bawat plastic bag na gagamitin.

Sa isinagawang pagdinig, nagbabala naman ang Philippine Plastics Industry Association Inc. na mamamatay ang industriya ng plastik sa bansa kung itutuloy ang P10 buwis bawat piraso nito.

Sinabi ni Sultan Kudarat Rep. Horacio Suansing layunin ng Plastic Bag bill (House bill 8523) na mabawasan ang plastic bag na ginagamit sa mga mall, sales outlet at iba pang tindahan.

“It is a known fact that plastic bags contaminate soil and waterways. Based on available data, four to five trillion plastic bags are utilized worldwide each year, and billions of these end up as litter,” ani Suansing.

Exempted naman sa panukala ang plastic na ginamit bilang original packaging.

Lumalabas din sa pag-aaral na bahagi ng plastic na ito ay nahahalo na sa pagkain.

“All this, together with unfortunate verity that producing 100 million plastic bags requires around 430,000 gallons of oil, bags that take hundreds to thousands of years to disintegrate, makes a worthy cause for addressing the problem of plastic bag proliferation,” dagdag pa ng solon.

Sinabi naman ni Willy Go ng PPIA na kaisa sila ng gobyerno sa pagligtas sa kalikasan pero masyado umanong mabigat ang P10 buwis bawat plastic.

“Plastics have satisfied all requirements. It is reusable recyclable non-toxic and biodegradable. Plastic has become a punching bag. Plastic usually floats.  . .plastic is not the main contributor in  our garbage. The government would spend more in dredging, which would be much more expensive from life cycle assessment,” ani Go.
