Toxic: The Brittany Spears Kind

You may have been affected by the recent banning of plastic bags in major supermarkets that commenced on the 1st of July.

I may sound ignorant, but I assume that this was put in place so we look like we’re doing something to prevent the world from being set on fire by the sun within the next 20 years. Oh, and the turtles. Less plastic = less drastic.

O’Shea and Dyer Townsville lawyers are also doing their bit for the environment. We’re on the way to becoming paperless baby.

However, before I agree with the ban I must confess something.

I wish I didn’t, but I love plastic bags. You could go as far to say that they are a passion of mine. I collect them like a chipmunk collects nuts for the winter.

They’re your grandmother’s heroin and your mother’s Mary Jane. You know what I’m talking about – the stash under the kitchen sink. O’Shea and Dyer law firm Townsville catch my drift.

I have this fear that my children will never get to experience the functionality of a plastic bag. When they pack their ports for a family holiday – what will they put their shoes in?

But I know in my heart that this is wrong. We should start collecting other things like stamps and model cars and Pokémon cards.

So please, take your stash of plastic bags.

Remove one for each of your unborn children and place them carefully in the safe. One day these things will be a rarity.

Remind yourself that plastic bags could’ve lived on if we saw them as said rarity. I suppose then we wouldn’t find them inside the stomachs of seagulls or wrapped around the necks of turtles.

Anyway, politely say goodbye to the most functional, yet most evil invention you will ever come across.

And then let go.

Stop holding onto the things that inadvertently hurt you.

The team at O’Shea and Dyer Townsville Law Firm endorse this advice on a scale that precedes plastic bags.

We want you to sort out your situation and your plastic bag situation.

O’Shea and Dyer are here to serve you in all situations – as your local lawyer for any occasion. Whether that be as your Family Lawyers Townsville, to draft your Wills or anything in between.

Because just like the plastic bag using members of society, you have to look after your future.
