    Look at this absolute bullshit from the most trusted news source in Australia. Plastic straws float. They cannot be collected underwater.

  2. A reader says:

    I’ll be buying bulk on ebay, probably from China. Buggered if I’m going to make my life less convenient for such a nonsense storyline. Plastic in the ocean doesn’t generally come from here

    What are people dining out on Italian or Chinese takeaway supposed to use?
    Their fingers?

    All this crap from the disposable green liberals

  5. NFA says:

    Good to see that the important matters are being dealt with.

  6. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    I’m sad for the satin bowerbirds.
    No more blue straws.

    but, what is ColesWorth going to wrap the pre-packaged and double priced tomatoes in?

  8. Tel says:

    They are testing out how shallow the Teal voters are and what token gesture might win them over.

    It’s one of Australia’s greatest inventions after chicken salt!

    Furry woooden sporks. Because you know they are better for the environment /sarc.

    That would be a case of history repeating itself.

    The now banned plastic shopping bags (at least here in Victoria) were brought in originally because the old brown paper grocery bags were considered environmentally unfriendly.

  12. Boambee John says:


    The same campaign themes and probably some of the same campaigners, appear in many “environmental” campaigns, often for diametrically opposite objectives. The paper/plastic/paper bag progression is simply a current example.

  13. Charles says:

    What a laugh, even Greenpeace are now acknowledging that plastics can’t be economically recycled and should be put in landfill like all the other rubbish.

    It’s also a reminder that most of the plastic litter in the marine environment and elsewhere comes from rich Western nations (like Australia) ‘recycling’ plastic by bundling it up and sending it to poor Asian and African nations for the ‘ more recycling’ which usually involves chucking it in the nearest river after they’ve taken any useful stuff out if it.

    So, the better policy would have been just to stick it in landfill where it couldn’t find its way into the environment, but that would have of course meant some some intellectual effort which none of our politicians appear to want to do at any time.

  14. Buccaneer says:

    There is actually a solution to this problem and it was invented by an Aussie, but it kind of exposes the hypocrisy of the left and in particular the greens.

    They continually place obstacles in the way of these guy developing plant because they don’t like that their tech turns it all back to oil.

  15. Chris M says:

    Pretty neat Buccaneer but probably no need, just burn the scrap plastic and generate electricity. High temperature incineration ensures no smoke or toxins escape.

  16. Buccaneer says:

    That won’t happen, too many CO2 emissions. They are closing all the fossil fuel burning power plants, all incinerators will go too if they can achieve it. It’s a cult. The luddites with an ankle bracelet.

    Pity they don’t apply the same rules for all the crappy masks and testing paraphernalia for the imaginary Covid “pandemic”.
