Dutch NGO Recycling Netwerk reveals there’s a plastic layer in every soft drink and beer can. Producers use it to avoid reaction between the drink and the aluminium and steal.
This may have political consequences.
Dutch Government decided to introduce a deposit system on plastic bottles unless industry collects them all. Cans were excluded from the deposit system because they do not contribute to the plastic marine litter according to Dutch Government. Wrong according to Recycling Netwerk, there’s plastic inside the cans.
Yes, but there are less cans than plastic bottles being littered according to Dutch Government. Wrong again according to the Dutch NGO, there are more cans being littered than plastic bottles.
