But since I haven’t stopped doing it so far, it must help keep me sane in isolation. So until the situation changes, I’ll be like Billy Idol, oh oh, dancing with myself.
Away with plastic, here with alternative packaging! Yes, apparently the Federal Environment Ministry has succeeded in taking a step forward and banning plastic packaging as far as possible. Or something like that. Of course we have to make exceptions. We can’t just ban all plastic packaging now. Where would we be then? Who thinks of the milk? Yes, the milk packaging must remain plastic. At least that’s what the milk lobby says. We still need milk in plastic bottles because there are reasons! Milk in plastic is what gives milk this unique taste. Without plastic, less calcium – or something like that. It is nothing new that the federal ministries give up any absurd lobby groups, but the milk lobby is wild! Perhaps the exemptions will tip because of their absurdity. A more climate-friendly Germany would definitely be desirable for all of us.
