Plastic vapor barriers install fairly quickly, and there's no VOC's or drying time to worry about. They can give a basement a brighter, more cheerful appearance, or they can be used behind finished walls.
Albury Enviro Bags of course applauds moves to reduce pollution and plastic bag use and promote the use of more environmentally friendly alternatives. However, having said this, we do have some reservations about the best methods to ensure an environmentally responsible community. Most concerns about plastic bag use result from improper disposal of the bags and consequent littering of the environment. This clearly is a human behaviour problem which requires modifying, but is banning the product the best way of making people more environmentally responsible in regard to waste disposal? Even now many are concerned that the new biodegradable plastic bags will result in even more littering as these bags are being promoted as being environmentally "safe", thereby actually encouraging littering behaviour.
Although many companies and contractors support the fight with pollution, sometimes business interests are what stays on the way of better solutions. The first example I can think of are again, plastic bottles. Here is what I mean: Recently US House of Representatives removed the ban on bottled water sales introduced in several national parks and nature reserves. Behind this decision lays very sneaky reasons. Bottled water producers and providers want us to buy more plastic bottles because of the profits they make. For the public they present of course other reasons - "Cheap, zero kilojoule convenient hydration option", "public health and safety" , etc. And that's not only in the US. The situation in Australia is no different. We are encouraged to buy more plastic bottles with promises of health and safety. All this to cover the fact that plastic bottles are cheaper and easier to transport and not so good for anybody. But it seems this doesn't matter.
