Posted in: Japan's low virus mortality rate reflects social manners: Aso See in context

Latest data on births and deaths in Japan. Apparently up to March 2020, death rates is lower than last year. Just need to wait for the data for following months.

(FYI, over 1.3 million deaths last year & average 3500/day. For those on cautious side, makes you wonder how many elderly deaths are counted as just pneumonia & not tested.)

Posted in: Tokyo hotel to trial newly-developed wooden straws, ban plastic See in context

Last time I used a straw was either for a slurpy or bubble tea drink. Companies are just trying to show they are being eco-conscious by saying they will ban straws, when straws are the least of the plastics that is in overuse. If they really want to make a difference, they should look at their whole operation.

Manufacturers need to reduce the amount of unnecessary packaging and regulation is needed. Government needs to go more than just promote Recycling as it doesn't put a stop to overuse. Even the Recycling itself often is to export those plastics overseas for someone else to handle. Recycling isn't cheap, as it waste time and energy too.

Basic 3 Rs is REDUCE, REUSE & lastly RECYCLE.

As consumers, we can refuse plastic bags, straws and be selective in our choices.
