Woolworths trials 20 cent paper bags at 21 stores (82)

Supermarket giant Woolworths has quietly rolled out paper bags at selected stores as an alternative to plastic reusable ones.

Supermarket giant Woolworths has quietly rolled out paper bags at selected stores as an alternative to plastic reusable ones. Thoughts? 🤔

Awesome

It’s what they packed groceries in until they changed to plastic. Everything old is new again.

I'm horrified! They're hardly reusable and promotes the cutting down of millions of trees, using tins of water in paper making and untold energy to manufacture the paper and the bags...!! FFS!

How about ditching bags full stop. Force customers to bring and reuse their own.

Duh!

Kristina Keneally has accused Peter Dutton of having an obsession with her 'bordering on the unhinged' as the two traded barbs over border protection.

True though!

Of cause she thinks everything she says is right

Dutton is doing the toughest job in the country. She is not speaking for the majority, nor her party. I see her and DiNutter skipping down the Green brick road. To oblivion. They work on fear- if we scare the kids enough they will vote for us.

Lolololl

Oh seriously Keneally, you really need to grow up. Remember it is better to have people think you are stupid, than open your mouth and remove all doubt..

It’s getting hot in there?

nobody could be surprised by this egomaniac’s loose cannon behaviour 😳😳😳 she has never succeeded at anything she’s been handed ...

Good on KK. She knows it's all propaganda that Dutton has fuelled along with the trolling grunts who follow Dutton.

Yay! Another beat-up by the Liberal Party media outlets.

Absolute nonsense. Labor needs to push back far harder to the LNP’s agenda of creeping authoritarianism. They’re still backing down on too much.

'Destroying horses on an industrial scale': How horse racing doesn't play by its own rules (33)

An extensive ABC investigation has revealed the widespread slaughter of racehorses for pet food and human consumption at abattoirs and knackeries in New South Wales and Queensland.

'Destroying horses on an industrial scale': How horse racing doesn't play by its own rules

We need a Royal Commission into Animal Cruelty in NSW & Australia NOW

As humans, do we care about animal suffering? Why do we sometimes and no other times? Why is this slaughter unacceptable but live export, cows, pigs, sheep kept and killed in inhumane conditions 'part of life'? Why are humans so self contradictory?

I share the disgust and outrage, but did you all previously think that somehow, magically every horse born in AUS is a winner? Where did you think the horses go that aren't? They get slaughtered. It's ugly and the same goes for dogs and chickens ducks cows calves sheep lambs pigs

Thank-you for this horrific and shocking report...people who support this industry ought to be ashamed of themselves...all in the cause of greed

Close the racing industry immediately. Fuk the spring carnival. I’m seriously contemplating pulling out of a horse I have a share in!

Jockey says she 'failed' after recognising her horse slaughtered on camera (25)

A Queensland jockey describes the horror of seeing a horse she says she rode for years killed at an abattoir on the ABC's 7.30 program.

Jockey says she 'failed' after recognising her horse slaughtered on camera

Not just slaughter, they were torturing and being sadistic to these poor animals. These people should be charged with severe animal cruelty.

The sadistic bogans who tortured these horses must be banned from future employment in any industry that involves the management of animals.

This is just cruel . That guy hitting the horse needs a kick in the head , we need to stop this from happening

Racing industry should pay money into a fund on every race every horse bred for it's welfare post it's working life.

Devastating.
