A video footage of an Italian woman in Germany, which was uploaded on the social media earlier this summer, was met with strong reaction and seen by over a million person.
Isabella Valentini uploaded the footage to show the operation of a plastic bottles refund machine in Germany, while she encouraged her country’s authorities to invest in similar machines.
Valentini is seen placing a number of plastic bottles in the machine, one after the other, and for every bottle the price is listed in the machine. Finally she was given a receipt of €4.50 to cash immediately.
In the last Budget, the Maltese government had proposed a similar system and consultation of this issue ended last June.
