Three new plastic bag bills have been proposed in Colombia’s Congress. The first bill (No. 082/2016S), proposed in the Senate, would establish provisions to gradually phase out the production and use of single-use plastic bags, aiming to achieve an 80% reduction by 2020 and complete elimination by 2025. The second bill (No. 053/2016C), proposed in the House, would create a national environmental tax on plastic bags distributed at points of sale. The third bill (No. 045/2016C), also proposed in the House, would establish regional programs to carry out public awareness campaigns to promote the substitution, recovery, and reuse of plastics bags, and provide information on the negative environmental impacts associated with their use.
