Japan Plastic Woes

Japan Plastic Woes

In this June 18, 2019, photo, a plastic recycling company worker adds used plastic bottles into bale breaker for processing, at Tokyo Petbottle Recycle Co., Ltd, in Tokyo. Japan has a plastic problem. Single bananas here are sometimes wrapped in plastic. So are individual pieces of vegetables, fruit, pastries, pens and cosmetics. Plastic-wrapped plastic spoons come with every ice cream cup. But as world leaders descend on Osaka for the two-day G20 Summit that starts Friday, June 28, Japan has ambitions to become a world leader in reducing plastic waste. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)
