SANTIAGO (Xinhua) – Chile’s Association of Plastic Industries has filed a complaint with the Constitutional Court seeking to repeal a law prohibiting the use of plastic bags in the country. According to the association, “the ban on bags will have a serious economic impact. Our estimates suggest that more than 2,500 families would be affected by the loss of jobs offered by the industry.” The Chilean parliament passed a law in May banning the commercial use of plastic bags.
