Plastic Life

Supermarkets in Victoria has phased out the single use plastic bags from 1 July, with Woolworths already doing that since 20th June.

I think we have now and then seen or heard of the devastating effect plastic has on our environment. 

Yes plastic is bad, but I would also like to thank the typically organic polymers of high molecular mass for its initial contribution to the advancement of humankind.

I’ve been taking my own shopping bags whenever I do my top ups just to get in the habit of not depending on the single use plastic bags since March.

Not everyone likes the idea of getting rid of the single use plastic bags. It’s free, and many people or households have used it for lining their rubbish bin at home.

I understand the sentiment, but I also feel that the best way forward is for us to change our habit and move on. Even if you don’t feel an inch of compassion to the dead marine life due of plastic bags, then do it because it’s just how life is in a progressive society.

If you’ve used the single use plastics for lining your rubbish bin at home, then buy the bin liner rolls to line your bins or start a compost bin.

Used the plastic bags to collect your dog poop? Buy the dog poo bags.

Who says being green or environmentally conscious is easy? In fact it is neither easy nor cheap.

I read that you could also line your rubbish bin with several layers of newspaper, then just wrap it up when you’re ready to throw it away.

Just who still reads newsPAPER nowadays?

Here Comes the Bride!

So we all know about the American actress who married a British prince not too long ago.

It was televised world-wide, a lot of press coverage and intense scrutiny surrounding the couple from the very beginning until now.

Sure, people can say what they want about the motives, the event, the past lives and so on about the couple.

What annoys me the most is the unflattering titles of news articles, specifically about the bride.

Why do you guys (journalists) like to start off your piece with….. being snubbed/not dressed as per protocol/not sitting the proper way/showing too much skin/not showing skin at all/not being herself/being pretentious/has already spent more than $XX on her wardrobe and so on.

PLEASE :

1.  Write about her current work/initiatives

2. Leave the girl alone. Being married is the start of a new life, and to someone who is the total opposite of herself makes it a lot harder for her to adjust.

3. Write more positive articles. The world has too much negative press already, I don’t need any more.

4. Don’t compare her to anyone else. She only knows how to be herself.
