The government negotiated the draft with representatives of industrial corporate systems and multinational companies who left nothing to chance.

Let us approach the waste problem from the fact that it is the direct consequence of the consumer society. The world of advertisements, shopping malls and promotions induce us to buy. Even if we do not need anything at the moment. This is waste production per se: we will throw away the useless items, they will become waste. In Hungary each one of us contributes to the environment contamination with around 500 kg waste annually and this quantity is ever growing.
