You’ve fallen for the distraction @Cobham-Saint and you’ll get the privilege of being taxed for it.
For the record, i am anti all plastic production
The below quote points out the usual problem with all these “measures”(remember, they will tax you, whilst production and consumption increase(good initiative?)).
The whole article is very well put together.
“One of the most major toxic pollutants we boundlessly produce and consume is plastic. As recently as this year, many people first became aware of the enormous problem of plastic pollution. In response to the newfound knowledge, several companies and municipalities banned plastic straws and urged a reduction of our consumption of “single use” plastics. Yet these measures will barely begin to curb the plastic problem, considering production of plastic is still on course to soar by 40% in the next decade.Not only is it vital that we try to eliminate the pollution already created, but we must curtail the stream of pollution that rolls of off assembly lines every day if we are to make any progress whatsoever. The only real method to deal with the problem of waste stemming from our over-consumption is cutting it off at its source.”
