Voters in Switzerland's biggest canton have overwhelmingly approved a new article to promote a cleaner and more efficient use of resources.

Just under 90% of Zurich citizens on Sunday said yes to the idea, which the cantonal government proposed as an alternative to an initiative by the young Green Party. All political parties were in favour of the idea.

The canton's constitution will therefore be adapted to include an article calling on authorities to create frameworks for a“considerate treatment of resources, materials, and goods, as well as the closing of materials loops”.
