    Did he blame genocide and set his country up for a major lawsuit that they will probably lose based on what he said?

    Election coming up. He wants to polish his image. Yet he fails to mention what they plan for other plastic waste ie: plastic cutlery, bottled water and packaging.

    Plastic waste has to go. Simple as that.
    Companies are gonna have to adapt or die.

    Sucks people will lose jobs.

    Bring it up with Trudeau, the guy that bought that 4.5 billion dollar imaginary pipeline

    Paper straws are just as good honestly. @Never_Rolled@Never_Rolled have you used them yet? They're the law in the city of Deerfield Beach, though the state legislature may have overturned that

    I’ved used them in the past. They can collapse easy. Kind of funny Walmart had a set of stainless straws for around $4 almost put them in my cart but said nah. I usually either drink bottled water (never soda) or Gatorade and the occasional beer so I don’t really need straws all that much.

    Paper straws work fine but when it comes to reducing plastic consumption they are nothing more than putting lipstick on a pig.

    My first thoughts as well. Then I actually used them and they hold up. I tested it over a 2-day period (light washing/rinsing in between).

    They hold up.

    LMAO at straws getting so much attention.

    They're fucking straws. As far as plastic waste is concerned, they don't add up to a pimple on an elephant's ass.

    I was checking out at the grocery the other day and this lady had a shit ton of nasty cloth bags that she had the bagger tossing all her shit in. That's the new thing at this store apparently in an attempt to save plastic.

    When he saw I didn't have any with me, the check out guy asked me if I wanted to purchase reusable bags. I said "No, plastic is fine." The lady who had just checked out in front of me looked back and gave me a very disapproving look. I looked right at her when I said to the bagger "Triple bag everything please."

    Read some freakenomics on this a few years back. Basically the things your average joe does to save the environment doesn’t matter.

    sometimes I feel bad if my dog shits in someone's front yard, especially if the grass is nicely cut

    if grass is mess, I look around to see if anyone is watching and if no one, just bounce

    If someone lets their dog shit in my yard and they don't pick it up, it's 100% go time.

    There's a worthless sack of shit that lives about 4 houses down from me. His dog took a shit on my lawn and he didn't pick it up. I went to the garage and grabbed a shovel, scooped up the shit and deposited it in his front yard while he was still sitting on the front porch. He had a look of disbelief in his eyes, but he didn't say a word.
