Best bit of the budget!

20. Reducing single-use plastics waste

The government will seek views on reducing single-use plastics waste through the tax system and charges. Disposable plastics like coffee cups, toothpaste tubes and polystyrene takeaway boxes damage our environment
We have reduced use of carrier bags by 85% apparently. I personally will welcome a countryside with 85% less of these things tossed in the verges!


  1. I don't mind the plastic bags as I recycle them for use removing waste from the kitty litter. In fact I bug my friend for all her plastic bags as well. Still I do see that some just toss them hither and yon.

    God bless.

    1. I would love to be given paper bags (like they do in Ireland) I can think of lots of uses for them.


Three boxes of tissues later...

Finally seeing the back of our flu after working our way through 3 boxes of man sized tissues and all the odd ones tucked in bags and pocket...
