All want a level playing field, sloped in their favor if humanly possible. Few want or need over-regulation. Most are prepared to implement bans, especially when toxicity is involved or sustainable management is ignored.
Yes, some politicians favor taxes, often to disburse as they please. Thankfully, many thinking folks strive for sustainable conservation, as it has evolved in British Columbia through the Extended Producer Responsibility policy.

There will be winners and losers, but enlightened losers will move on or perish. If after a lifetime in the rubber and plastic industry I did not truly feel that plastics managed responsibly are more part of the solution than the problem, I would have found another vocation for my retirement years.
