COSTARICA / Costa Rica
Plastic pollution threatens the health of marine organisms and humans. Our project worked with the MarViva Foundation to gauge Costa Ricans’ interest regarding the implementation of a green tax on single-use plastic products through consumer surveys. We researched case studies and other published information supporting the implementation of a green tax. We concluded that the majority of Costa Ricans support a green tax and that legislation on plastic products is likely to be successful given the proper public and retailer education.
