Where can you get something similar to what is pictured though?
I use/reuse compostable bags for my produce, they are the same size as the plastic ones and allow things to breathe and stay fresh in the fridge. They all eventually end up collecting food scraps in my kitchen caddy. I always take a number of used ones and the new roll along with my shopping bags.
I have also started using them for all of my meat from the butcher shop - no more smelly plastic waste going to landfill! These go straight into the kitchen caddy 😉
Say no to single use items such as styrofoam!A sea of styrofoam. The convenience of single use items comes at a huge cost. Let's say NO to them forever. This powerful image was taken by Caroline Power Photography in Honduras. ... See MoreSee Less
I’ve been trying to do this and just before I get the chance to say no straw, they put one in. So now I say it when I order the drink.
I never use straws - don't see the need. I avoid plastic in all forms where possible or re-use it. The shops offer plastic bags for tiny items that are already well packaged - ridiculous. I wish more people would reject unnecessary plastic.
If we do use them, can they be recycled inside a plastic milk container like is fine with plastic lids?
I collect my straws and bottle tops and I put them in a cordial container for recycling.
What are the stats in Australia? 🇦🇺
Nikki Zanardo Dunno bout you girl, but I panic-forget most times so my drink orders end with my yelling ANDNOSTRAWPLEASE across the bar
Used to be able to take all grades of plastic to be recycled but now due to Chinese buyers they only except plastics with 1 or 2 on them. Surely a place in Australia can do this.
Go back to the old days of paper ones, they disintegrated very quickly!
