    Coles to pilot BYO container system
    Jun 4, 2021

    Coles customers shopping at the retailer’s Fitzroy supermarket in Melbourne next week will be able to take their own containers and fill them with washing detergent, face wash, shampoo, coffee and even olive oil.

    While health and safety rules dictate that customers still can’t use their own containers at the deli, Coles is testing a BYO container system for select ‘scoop and weigh’ products as part of its quest to cut down on plastic packaging and reduce waste sent to landfill.

  7. For a while, Monash council has been encouraging us to not just put leaves and twigs in our green bin, but also food scraps, both vegetable and animal. Now we’ve been told that later this year or weekly collection shall switch to the green bin, with the other two bins (yellow for all recycling, red for general landfill) alternating fortnightly.

    I guess we are not the first and the council is only reacting to dictates from the Victorian government.

    So Tulsi Gabbard the spokesperson for the World Economic Forum now ADMITS the US military arm of the globalists have 30 Bio-labs in Ukraine, 300+ bio-labs around the world along with 900+ military bases.
    Tulsi, why is there a need for 30 bio-labs in Ukraine alone, right on Russia’s border?

    That he beat the DC Swamp AND it’s International Backers in the first place was either a dumb luck miracle or the result of very long term, very careful planning.

    China called on the United States to prove that Russia’s biological claims were fake.

    Zhang Jun, Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations, made the request during a United Nations Security Council meeting in New York on Friday.

    The Biden administration and Ukraine’s leader reject Russian accusations that Ukraine is running chemical and biological labs with U.S. support.

    Jun said the U.S. should prove this by allowing for “multilateral verification” and producing “relevant data and provide clarification.”

    Steve, when I was growing up quite a few people had a veggie patch and/or fruit trees in their backyards. But, it was an is a hobby, not a viable food source. Peasant farmers have always been desperately poor, and that’s not going to change.

    Nowadays a lot of people live in places without a backyard, and growing a few micro herbs on your window sill is not going to feed anyone except a mouse.

    By all means, grow some veggies/fruit if you enjoy doing it. But, it has nothing to do with the reality of feeding the masses.

    This is a big part of our plan for the multi family/generation house.
    Rabbits are a problem, so the boys have fenced a very large area for the garden and added a few half tanks for raised beds. In addition, they’ve erected a hot house for tomatoes etc in winter.
    They’ve also planted 40 fruit and nut trees in a dedicated orchard area. And to top it off, six sheep (plus a new lamb born overnight, and three more to come) for future Sunday roasts.
    All this (plus 300 newly planted trees) is being watered from three 22,000 litre rainwater tanks.

    London: Australia’s hard-line COVID isolation policies have dragged down the nation’s international standing in the past year.

    According to the annual Brand Finance’s 2022 Global Soft Power Index, government decisions that stranded citizens and foreigners overseas for more than two years knocked Australia and New Zealand out of the top 10 and 20 countries, respectively.

    According to the Australian government, soft power is “the ability to influence the behaviour or thinking of others through the power of attraction and ideas” which it says is “vital to our foreign policy”.…

    Former race discrimination commissioner and now director of Sydney University’s Sydney Policy Lab Tim Soutphommasane said the results were “sadly, no surprise”.

    “The prolonged stance of ‘Fortress Australia’ was always going to damage our international reputation,” he said.

    “The closure of borders sent a clear signal that Australia believed it could stand apart from the world.

    “Many Australians mightn’t like to hear this, but the country needs to shake off the insular, parochial, little-Australia mindset that has gripped it for much of the past two years,” Soutphommasane said….

    Another way to put it Tim is get government out of our fvcking lives.
