Plastic waste

Post by orin stepanek » Mon Aug 19, 2019 12:16 pm

I watched a TV commentary on plastic pollution last night! I think it is a problem with very little solution! Recycling helps but a lot more is needed before it chokes off the world!

Buy your Trump straws today!

By Bess Levin, July 22, 2019

<<Like a cranky old man who spends most of his time yelling at the TV in his underwear, a lot of stuff sticks in Donald Trump’s craw. And that got Trump—or, more likely, some troll on his reelection campaign—thinking:

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is selling a 10-pack bundle of branded plastic straws for $15. Why is the Trump campaign selling straws with the word “TRUMP” on them? Simple. Because “liberal paper straws don’t work,” according to the store for Trump’s reelection campaign.

Yes, as many have pointed out, $1.50 is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a single straw, but you can’t put a price on sticking it to the libs by sucking down on some good, old-fashioned, not-actually-recyclable-despite-claims-to-the-contrary plastic bearing dear leader’s name. According to campaign manager Brad Parscale, the merchandise has been so popular it’s raised $210,000.>>
