WA Premier Mark McGowan has celebrated the banning of plastic bags and other plastic materials, with a ceremonial dumping of used masks and COVID tests in landfill.
Several million tons of plastic was dumped just south of Perth, with millions of tons of used COVID tests and masks making their way into the ground.
“I’m proud that our state has engaged in yet more performative bullshit that does nothing to actually solve the real problem when China and India pollute at will” McGowan said.
“The amount of plastic generated in the last two years basically cancels anything out but I’ll take the credit anyway by posting some vacuous shit on Facebook.”
McGowan has also proposed a new ocean dumping scheme off of Ningaloo Reef.
