If I don't have any Bananas, is that evidence that Bananas exist? 😉

The lack of evidence is the proof.
Guilty as charged your honour! :eek

Of course God exists. I've seen the paintings.

Are you sure it is a yetti or were you mistaken because of Gods long flowing yetti-like white beard

But when anyone does provide a link to such an article, or ones on similar issues, even if they're by a recognised publication, you dismiss them as fabrications if they don't support your version of reality :lol

The European Parliament has voted for a complete ban on a range of single-use plastics across the union in a bid to stop pollution of the oceans.

It estimates the EU plastic pollution is 150 thousand tonnes, but the global total is 8 million tonnes.
Blimey a bit of effort is also required elsewhere in order to make a significant difference! :eek

Just an excuse in this country to collect extra taxes. Little snip it I heard or read this week 1 council admitted there is no market any more for recyclable plastics even chine doesn't want it and they had to resort to burning it but it helped to generate energy. So from that is it safe to assume most of the recyclable plastic we put in our recycling bins finishes up in land fill????????? :eek

Certainly a percentage of it goes into land fill but what that percentage is no one is likely to say.

It is like cardboard and other packaging if it is dirty or greasy it goes to land fill sites, it would cost more to salvage it than the material value.

Who you going to believe? Some say recycle other say not.

We as the older generation may never know, but our kids and grandchildren will certainly have to pick up the tab, whether that is a financial tab or having to live in a polluted atmosphere with depleted plastic ridden seas.

They're the worst offenders there is when it comes to littering!.

I've lost count of the number of times you see them slinging all the packaging straight down on the floor once they've consumed the food or drink.

I've never seen a pensioner deliberately drop a single piece.

I will continue to fill the recycling bins done my bit then. I have no control over what happens to it next, we can protest, shout, scream, vote for who we believe to be the best of a bad lot, but money talks for greedy, not the needy so those that are in a position of power will do as they please not what's right.
