“It’s a win for Brisbane, it’s a good outcome and we’re pleased to have been able to lead the debate on that,” he said.

Last month, British Prime Minister Theresa May laid out plans to ban single-use plastics, including straws, drink stirrers and cotton buds, to stop pollution.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull wouldn’t commit to doing the same in Australia, saying it was a matter for state regulation.

Lead the way to the future Brisbane.
