I saw an advertisement on television regarding a fast food restaurant creating awareness on the use of plastic straws.
However, to my surprise when I went to their restaurant recently, I was still offered plastic straws.
Why would the restaurant put out expensive advertisements if they do not fully implement the message themselves?
On the other hand, the use of advertisements by the restaurant is laudable as it creates more awareness.
Perhaps it is time for the government to step in and ban the use of plastic straws similar to the ‘no plastic bag’ initiative to ensure that we leave a greener Brunei for future generations.
