The EU approved a ban on single-use plastics

Plastic straws, plastic cotton buds, plastic stirrers... These single-use plastic items will be banned in the European Union by 2021.

    Ban single use plastic great. Meanwhile japan will have to dump maybe up to 1 million tons of radioactive water into the Pacific ocean within the next 2 years from the fukushima nuclear power plant. Priorities i guess. Lol.

    We seem to always lag behind. Are we too spoiled?

    We hope we could change everything here in the phils. We should use all solid glass or invironmental object for the invironment

    Disgraceful that all the single use supermarket packaging which accounts for a damn sight more than this is not being addressed

    I'd prefer a ban on plastic/manmade material fishing equipment, which makes up the vast majority of ocean waste. But baby steps I suppose!
