Plastic should go into the national emergency stockpile

The corona pandemic and the war in Ukraine have made many goods in short supply – even those that we normally don’t think much about, usually just tear them away and throw them away carelessly. In the case of PET bottles, we still bring them to the collection point. It also makes sense, as the prices for PET have doubled in the last two years, as the “NZZ am Sonntag” writes.

But that’s not all: the current numerous supply bottlenecks are having an impact on the supply of all types of packaging material. The prices for aluminum, tinplate and various types of plastic have recently risen significantly. That is why the federal government is now examining whether compulsory stocks should be set up for plastic that can be used to produce casings for food.
