The cutting back on plastics is nonsense. Either ban it so it's no longer being produced and available to anyone, or get off the plastics are bad bandwagon. You're gonna charge me for plastic bags at supermarkets, but whether I buy one or not, the store already purchased them with stacks sitting ready to go. You've solved nothing. No different than recently visiting my home city of Manila, and all Starbucks in Makati only give paper straws (which suck because they start falling apart before you can finish your drink), but they are more than happy to sell you a plastic straw if you so choose. But I guess they thousands of plastic lids and cups don't matter.

Um yeah, because that logic makes sense.

I mean, if it doesn’t eliminate plastic 100%, it’s a useless measure right?

Facepalm

The logic is simple. Don't tell me plastic bags are evil, yet stores still buy them to have in stock "just in case." Meanwhile, 50%+ of the items sold in the store are also wrapped in plastic which are one time use and into the garbage. In the Starbucks and other fast food examples, they single out straws, yet oh well about all the lids, utensils, etc.

Specific to Japan, I count dozens of running vehicles routinely parked on the side of roads with people playing on their phone, watching tv, napping, and sometimes nobody in the car at all. Japanese REALLY dedicated to the environment. I guess the atmosphere doesn't count.
