I hear that Rubber is the next Item on their agenda.

We will be forced to use wooden wheels, and it is not known about condoms.

 

What ever happened to the Idea of Recycling ?

Guess it is cheaper to Ban something than set up a real solution.

What about all the Containers that Products come in ?

Will Milk be back in Glass Bottles ?

 

Seems to me that all they come up with are Knee Jerk Ideas, with no real thought given.

Will the Plastic Factories convert, or just close down ?

How many workers will lose their jobs in this Industry ?

What will be used to replace the plastic market ?

 

Maybe time to Buy a Cow, Plant a garden, and learn how to be self sufficient.

Could also be a good time to get a Buffalo with a Cart, before the Price goes up.

Because this kind of thing, has a habit of never stopping.

 

 

A wooden condom, that could leave splinters 😫

These idiots who want to eliminate plastics usage have zero understanding of how the world works.

I think the idiots are those who don’t understand which plastics need to be eliminated

Indeed - and the link to climate change is what?

 

Don't say CO2 because that has been done to death and, as I said in my original response to Eligius' post, the evidence is tenuous at best.  The production of plastics may well result in the emission of CO2, as do many other industrial processes, but will cutting back on plastic production and usage have any measurable effect on the climate?  I sincerely doubt it.

 

As I also said, I have no problems whatsoever in cutting pollution of all types but you should not have unreasonable expectations that this will 'solve' the so-called climate crisis.

Sounds a lot like denial of climate change to me. I only know one other person in denial.... the orange one.

Paper straws like in the 70s or none. Plastic utensils - only to be purchased in packs. Get rid of the plastic in packaging.

 

I want the plastic bags otherwise I'll just have to buy thicker, less biodegradable bags which is stupid.

 

Im not a hippy living on a commune in Issarn with compost toilets. Bangkok needs plastic bags for waste disposal.

Awesome every journey begins with one step 🙏

now every TV person. Refuse plastic straws, and bags with your ice coffees or whatever.

go invest in a cool highly efficient reusable coffee travel container and use it every time 😊🙏

Good luck trying to persuade this miserable bunch 🤣🤣🤣

I wish that 7/11 and Lotus would simply have a "help yourself" policy instead of handing out straws for every drink sold and spoons for every yogurt sold whether or not the customer asks for them. Thousands of unwanted and unused straws must be going into the garbage every day. It would save the stores money and also help the environment, seems like common sense to me.

you tink too mut

Complaining and whining are your 2 major hobbies?
