Introduce a tax on plastic packaging and reduce GST

I suggest that a tax on plastic packaging be introduced with a corresponding reduction in GST.

The plastic tax should be at a high rate to make it expensive for consumers.

This will encourage businesses and consumers to reduce the single use plastic products, such as packaging, bottles and straws, 

Consumers will find alternative ways to replace the use of these products. They can bring shopping bags. They can bring their own bottles to replace the plastic cups.

There should be a corresponding reduction in GST to offset this higher tax. The tax payers are already tired of paying more tax which increase the cost of living.
