So do you think that when New Zealand becomes a brown Moslem caliphate, as opposed to the white feminist caliphate that it currently is, they’ll keep the plastic ban?
I hope they do.
New Zealand officially banned single-use plastic shopping bags Monday, introducing hefty fines for businesses that continue to provide them.
Plastic pollution has become a growing global concern, with a million birds and more than 100,000 marine mammals injured or killed every year by becoming entangled in packaging or ingesting it through the food chain.
Companies that break New Zealand’s ban will face heavy penalties, including fines of up to NZ$100,000 ($67,000).
“New Zealanders are proud of our country’s clean, green reputation and want to help ensure we live up to it,” Environment Minister Eugenie Sage said.
“Ending the use of single-use plastic shopping bags helps do that.”
Under the new rules, thin plastic single-use shopping bags can no longer be supplied — but the law allows reusable carriers to continue being provided.
The legislation — which was announced in August last year and came into force on Monday — will have little practical effect, as New Zealand’s major supermarkets have already voluntarily banned the bags.
However, Sage said it was putting the issue of recycling on the agenda.
“The ban doesn’t go far enough, but what is really great is it’s started the conversation,” she told Radio New Zealand. “People are now talking about single-use plastics and how we can phase them out.”
I agree that this isn’t enough.
The production and distribution of single-use plastic should be banned. Plastic should be treated like child pornography.
This is a disaster and it’s completely out of control.
Plastic chemicals are changing our biology. They are messing up the endocrine systems of the population worse than soy itself, and I think they are causing autism.
No offense to vaccine autism believers, but this just makes more sense to me. And it makes equal sense why they would cover it up if it were plastic. There are bigger money interests in plastic than there are in vaccines.
