    BRISBANE City Council has announced it’s about to become one of Australia’s most environmentally friendly councils after it committed to banning plastic straws, helium balloons and single-use bottles.

    The council, one of Australia’s largest, will ban the plastic paraphernalia from all of its operations and events.

    Vendors at council-run events will not be allowed to supply the items, however, patrons can still bring their own, following a vote by council members.

    “We can’t stop people bringing them in,” council’s environment, parks and sustainability chairman David McLachlan told ABC Radio.

    From what it looks like, this is only happening at sponsored events.
