NSW to ban single-use plastics: Kate Washington frustrated by lack of action – AustraliaPosted on November 30, 2021 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
“The New South Wales Government has come last because the environment is its lowest priority.
“We support this bill, but in doing so, we would remind this government that protecting our environment is a race.
“It is a race to save koalas from land clearing approved by this government a race to save our rivers from the bungled irresponsible water policy, it is a race to save our state from a premier who says that any action on climate change is a gratuitous waste,” Ms Washington said.
“It is a race and NSW keeps coming last and sadly, today is no different,” she concluded.
Single-use plastics in New South Wales will be phased out by 1 November 2022, a year after the Bill was passed in Parliament.
Just looking at this photo shows how uninterested the government is in this poor woman’s fight to reduce single use plastic. The chamber is full of empty chairs except for one person who is so uninterested he is on his smart phone. Plus he is holding a single use plastic water bottle.
