Yeah, and that plastic can't be recycled.
Modern packaging sucks. But it's cheap. I guess.
Who here remembers a cupboard full of jelly jar drinking glasses?
Too many assholes just throw them in the streets
Plastic bags minor issue in Australia’s litter problem: report Dr Thornton is an expert in hazardous materials management. He admits plastic bag bans can be effective, but warns there could be significant consequences if they are rushed through. He pointed to Australia’s 2016-17 National Litter Index which found that plastic bags comprised just one per cent of Australia's total litter count.
The report foundcigarettes, beverage containers and takeaway food packages made up 66 per cent of Australia’s overall litter problem. In 2016-17, people dumped 26,548 cigarette butts and packages in Australia, compared to 476 plastic bags. Takeaway food containers made up 10,828 of the total. The numbers were similar the year prior.
