Govt blocks plastic bag ban

Govt blocks plastic bag ban – The West Australian.

How can we improve our environment with a government that lives in the past.  Wait on the results of another study means they were lobbied by industry groups and lack the foresight to look to the future.  West Australia will be the worse off for it now.  The state of Victoria in Australia recently decided to not pass a bill for a container deposit scheme that would clean up littered bottles in Victoria and change recycling from 30% to over 80% and create a number of jobs.    They cited “let’s wait for another study result”.   Do we see a pattern here with the pro business Liberal government thinking?
