QLD Government Puts Plastic Bag Ban & CDS on Agenda – Tangaroa Blue FoundationPosted on August 15, 2015 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
As you may have heard the Queensland Government this week announced that they are considering banning plastic bags (and other problematic packaging). The decision comes on top of the announcement last month that they would investigate a container deposits (cash for containers) scheme for Queensland.
To show how out of touch the current govt is in Australia, after this announcement was made, the Liberal member came out with this foolish comment “the government should be focussing on jobs not reducing pollution!” We know people need sleep sometimes but these Liberal guys must be asleep all the time to have missed this whole discussion and how many jobs adding a CDS will contribute to the economy in Queensland.
Go Queensland and fix this pollution problem, crate the new jobs and support the civic groups that will benefit from this.
