Queensland’s ban on single use plastics begins

September, 2021

Queensland businesses are now banned from selling or supplying some plastic and polystyrene products, as the state vows to tackle plastic pollution. The ban stepped in to its full right on the 1st of September, 2021. So, what is it about?

From the 1st of September 2021, the supply of single-use products including straws, cutlery, plates, bowls, stirrers and polystyrene takeaway containers and cups is banned.

Why so much war-like rhetoric?

It is the first phase in what the Environment Minister calls the state’s “war on waste”.

“[It’s about] trying to reduce the amount of single-use plastics that end up in our oceans each year,” Meaghan Scanlon said.

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) has called the move a win for turtles, but disability advocates are encouraging businesses to be open-minded about exemptions.

Although this all sounds politically correct, but the war-like rhetoric should incur a subserviently pointed suspicions against the real background on the case of dealing with something so intrinsically connected with the conditions of human existence, whether it be society, environment, political orientation or a survival of the human race. Is it about survival, where the war-like rhetoric’s are sneaking in, or is it in the order of ordained hierarchies of political, societal, financial and governmental powers, as reflected through the inner relationships of human psychic, that are the cause and its effect.
