State of Jalisco Bans Plastic!

A collective roar of gratitude was heard throughout the Bay of Banderas when the decision was announced by the Congress of the State of Jalisco of its intention to approve a bill prohibiting the use of straws, plastic bags and Styrofoam throughout the state.  The damage caused by these products has reached an alarmingly dangerous level to marine fauna.  It stops now.

Citizen Movement Deputy Verónica Jiménez stated, “What we are proposing is that the warnings and regulations be put into force as of January 1, 2019, and communicated throughout the year to make the public aware and socially conscientious.  Effective January 1, 2020 violators will be fined.”

The State action was prompted by the initiative presented in Puerto Vallarta by city councilman Juan José Cuevas, based on the observations he had made about the indiscriminate use of straws in our popular beach resort destination.

“This [initiative\ is very important because it is not just a question of prohibiting plastics, but also of generating incentives aimed at economic entities that substitute plastic bags, straw and Styrofoam for biodegradable products.”

The responsibilities for the 125 municipalities are to regulate and sanction the use of these products, as well as to generate environmental education campaigns, agreements with companies that replace their plastics with biodegradable materials, monitor compliance with the prohibition and establish sanctions.

Jiménez explained that during 2019 stores will only be put on alert so that businessmen who have accumulated merchandise can use what is already stored in their warehouses during that time.

“We are going to issue warnings so that the use of these products is discouraged until the first of January of 2020, at which time whoever uses or sells them will be sanctioned and fined. What we want is for our municipalities to be free of these harmful contaminants.”
