EU Approves Ban on Single-Use Plastic Products

Other

The EU is at it again. Now they're banning single-use plastics.

Plastic products have its pros and cons but banning single-use ones altogether? That's really a stretch but not surprising coming from the EU.

Let's see what the EU have been demanding so far:

- Ban Memes

- Ban the Daylight Saving Time

- Ban Single-Use Plastics

- Ban Cars from Cities by 2050

I wish this was a made-up list but they are actually serious with this stuff. Smh.

The sooner more European countries leave the EU, the better.

I am not quite sure how anyone can disagree with banning single use plastics. We are polluting our world and the seas and killing animal life, surely we should be looking toward all disposable items being multi use as a first step. Maybe you could explain your stance further.

I also cannot see the problem with banning cars from cities as long as there is adequate means to get around, air pollution is actually killing people in inner cities.

Daylight saving I couldn't care less either way but hate it being dark so early. I believe we are the only country to do this. But I could be wrong.

Memes? I don't even know what they are and can't be bothered to Google at the moment.

Single-Use Plastics

They are cheaper to reproduce and there are a lot of times they can be reused. Let's say, water bottles, for example.

If people were organized and cared about being clean then they would be, banning plastic is just unnecessary. Next they'll ban wood (hope not).

Banning Cars

This is a terrible idea because people independently need their own vehicle whether to drive somewhere exactly, carry packages that would take too much space on public transport or on a bike. And public transport in some cities just plain sucks, that is, there's barely any buses so you have to walk or pay for a taxi ride.

Daylight Time

Just like the saying goes; If it ain't broken, don't fix it. It has always been the way it is and there's nothing wrong with it.

Memes

This actually goes further than memes, it's about the EU trying to block copyright content on pictures and videos and it's already in effect.

The EU is trying to decide what we can and can't do at this point. I can't believe but VPN for me is essential now as there are websites I'm blocked from because I live in a European country that's part of the EU. At least it was a 'lifetime' VPN license so don't need to pay yearly/monthly for it.
