Operating theatres are healing the sick but harming the environment
The Sydney Morning Herald
Wed 3 July, 2019
The news that the NSW government is moving forward in a "comprehensive" plastics policy leaves me unconvinced. In 2019, NSW is still teetering on the brink of a plastic bags ban, something other states and countries have managed to do years ago. When I see the majority of shoppers using reusable bags, I wonder why the NSW government can’t press ahead. And does its "comprehensive" plan include the numerous other plastics that we still use and discard every day, specifically the single-use plastic found in all healthcare facilities, particularly operating theatres?
