精選詞彙播客 Vocab Ep.088: Charging for plastic bag 塑膠袋使用付費

· 精選詞彙單元 Vocab

Summary:

This article is a piece from a few years ago when the UK government began charging for plastic bags with the aims of reducing pollution and waste. Many shoppers were confused with the new 5pence plastic bag policy that came with exemptions for buying pet fish; raw fish, meat or poultry; unwrapped blades (including axes, knives and razor blades); takeout food; or loose seeds and flowers. Many other countries have also banned giving away free plastic bags at supermarkets and retail outlets such as the US, Bangladesh, Rwanda. Plastic bags can take up to 1000 years to decompose.

Vocabulary and Sample Sentences:

Proceeds n. – money obtained from an event or activity
