Costa Rica May Become One of the First Carbon-Neutral Nations in the World by 2021
Costa Rica is showing the world what a committed climate policy actually looks like. The country wants to be the first to go completely single-use plastic– and carbon-free, hoping to reach that goal as early as 2021. And so far, it’s doing pretty well. It’s already started by banning all single-use plastics in 2017 and has launched a national campaign to replace these plastics for biodegradable or water-soluble alternatives, or products made of renewable materials.
