The government of India has many arguments in favor of the ban on tobacco advertising. One of the arguments is the right of the government to step in and promote a healthier lifestyle. Many of the tobacco advertising companies stated that the ban on advertising was unconstitutional, but the supreme court in Belgium and France both agreed that the ban was not unconstitutional and was needed the ensure the public health. In 1990 tobacco attributed to over 3 million deaths and escalated to 4.023 million deaths in 1998. Studies show that when people quit smoking they spend their money in different sectors of the economy creating more jobs and economic growth.
Nevertheless, plastic bags have become a leading worldwide source of pollution. There is controversy with the ban because making plastic bags create jobs and people still want them because it provides income. I believe plastic bags should be banned because it helps the environment, it eliminates contamination and reduces accidents in the streets, and reduces animal deaths in Brownsville. Banning plastic bags will help the environment. It will not only increase the number of trees in the planet, but also aid in living in a much safer place.
To encourage investment in research and development of "greener" technologies, governments can start by eliminating subsidies to the industries of oil and gas and impose taxes higher to big polluters.Although governments have their role in the development of clean energy, it is likely that the private sector give the most funding and innovation for new energy projects. Joint -stock companies are busy evaluating and funding new technologies, while corporations also are jumping on board. In early 2006, General Electric (GE), one of the largest corporations in the world, announced a new push for environmental technologies, which could promote the development of new products and services, as well as reduce the impact of the company on the environment.Under this initiative, all business units of GE will have to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide to meet strict internal targets, while spending on research of clean products will double by 2010. Due to this change in GE , it is likely to see other companies adopting similar strategies to seek profits in a business environment greener. sometimes hydroelectric projects have brought significant negative impacts to theenvironment, so that should be considered alternative ways to generate electricity.
In the Baltimore Sun editorial, an anonymous author writes about the positive effects of sin taxes in an article entitled “Sin Taxes Save Lives by Changing Unhealthy Behaviors.” The author presents the case that sin taxes benefit society because they change consumer behavior and promote a healthier, more active lifestyle. The writer states, “Americans are consuming too many sugary drinks that contribute to rising obesity and diabetes rates. The latest weapon in the public health arsenal to combat the problem—taxing them—deserves more serious consideration.” The author of the article continues explaining how consumers will lead healthier lifestyles by expanding on two main points that attest to the improvement of society. The author’s first reason for supporting sin taxes is because the increased price for products changes consumer behavior. The author expands on his point by stating, “It’s not just a matter of revenue for cash-strapped local governments but an effort to fundamentally change consumer behavior.” By placing a higher tax on products deemed unhealthy, the public has a smaller opportunity to purchase these goods.
They go on to say that constitutional precedent exists for the ban and point to countries such as Belgium and France where courts ruled in favor of bans on tobacco advertisements in an effort to protect the health of the citizens. Parties in favor of a tobacco advertisement ban link tobacco use to over four million deaths in 1998. In India, proponents provide an economic argument to a ban since 0.14% of GDP is created from excise revenue from tobacco companies, but tobacco use creates an expense of 0.21% of GDP in healthcare costs. They also insist that a ban on tobacco advertisements, which may lead to a reduction of tobacco use, would actually increase employment as money would be spent on more economically valuable products and services rather than tobacco. Proponents of the ban fear that tobacco companies are specifically targeting youth with advertisements in order to gain new consumers.
It is not only control the marketing for producer on sugar-sweetened drinks, but also decrease the consumption by fat tax. According to the research on internet about tax and negative externalities, this is a best way to solve the public health challenge associated with the deterioration of the population’s dietary habits. Maybe it is difficult for government to change the daily habits, but the way to added fat tax is a kind of solution to maintain the condition of marketing. Because we can’t disregard that sugar-sweetened is detrimental to health. At the same time, it will bring a lot of negative affect for the marketing of sugar-sweetened drinks in a short term.
Government of India announced on February 6, 2001 the decision of legislate to stop Tobaco Companies from advertising their product and sponsor sports and cultural events. This create a conflict between pro and against ban, due to economical and ethical interest.

Their arguments: - discourage adolescents from consuming - a ban will give power to the government to launch anti tobacco campaign - government will take side to help citizen wellness, as an ethical choice - help reduce the cost of surgery due to smoke related illness - if not smoking people will spend money in other services or product, creating demands and new jobs - study made by DOH  indicates that ban
The deterioration of the environment led to the adoption and the development of consciousness of consumers’ attitude towards eco-friendly products in order to protecting the planet (Luck et al., 2009, p. 2). However, little research has previously been conducted on shopping bags. According to National Geographic News found the data from the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States The fact that goods and services are being consumed in ever‐increasing amounts, with a worldwide consumption of 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags every year. Hence, it gives us a strong reason to further investigate about this topic this topic. It gives us an incentive to understand how consumers attitude and perception towards the consumption of eco-friendly shopping bags.
One of the environmental concerns in Brunei is the solid waste disposal. Plastic bags are commonly used as convenience for shopping, however, its nature of not being decomposed easily is a problem for the ecosystem. A survey performed by the Department of Environment, Parks, and Recreation showed that for two weekends, the use of plastic bags of one supermarket reached 3000-8000. The ‘No Plastic Bag Weekend’ was later initiated in 2011, to increase society awareness on the use of reusable bags (Department of Environment, Parks, and Recreation, n.d.). The head of the department stated that they are also aiming to vastly reduce the habit of using Styrofoam for food packing, for ecological and healthiness concerns (The Brunei Times, 2014).
