You've heard of a sushi train, but have you seen a sashimi boat? Loving the reusable dish that @reefgasworks use! 😊 #QLDPlasticsBan
Maxine from @piccolobyher is excited to be using their fun new paper straws. #qldplasticsban
Great to see @subway_australia at #westendbrisbane encouraging customers to skip a straw and lid if they don't need it!
