Australia has set plans to phase out single-use “problematic and unnecessary” plastics from 2025, including utensils, straws, food containers, microbeads in beauty products, and other consumer goods packaging.
"It's only one straw," said 8 billion people. By 2050 it's estimated that there will be more plastic than fish in the world's ocean. The humble straw and plastic cutlery being some of the worst culprits. Single-use straws and cutlery can't be recycled, they aren't biodegradable, and they can cause serious harm to marine life.
