Hikers and tourists visiting one of Italy's most scenic stretches of coastline have been banned from carrying plastic bottles of water amid fears that the area is being "buried" in rubbish.

Read the full details here.

I think this is a policy which could be copied in so many other parts of the world, where plastic bottles (and plastic bags) are a serious menace.

I agree and a town here in Queensland Australia is going to do that they are going to ban the complete sale of plastic shopping bags and it is a beautiful coastal region called Agnes waters and the town of 1770 apparently there are more and more turtles being found with these bags around their flippers necks an even inside their stomachs
