So when headlines hit earlier today that the government may be about to ban plastic straws I should have been thrilled – but I’m not. Like anything when it comes to ethical living, plastic pollution is a complex issue. The ban on plastic microbead use in cosmetics that came into effect at the start of 2018 felt like the first successful step on the road to reducing plastic pollution – so why isn’t the proposed straw ban an equally positive move?

Many of us have criticised the BBC over the past 7 years of bias, and of reflecting broadly establishment opinion. However, the broadcasting corporation has persistently defended itself against legitimate charges of ideological favouritism, claiming a reputation for fair coverage.  Given the BBC’s reach, and the trust placed in it, any biases could potentially have a…
