Tuesday TV Ratings: Life In Plastic Is NOT Fantastic, The ABC’s War On Waste Returns

Forget those popular Barbie lyrics – life in plastic is really, really not fantastic.

This was the clear message on ABC’s War On Waste which returned to screens last night.

TV Highlights

  • It’s a draw for Seven and Nine with both channels gaining a 26.9% audience share
  • Seven’s The Chase wins entertainment crown with 557,000 metro views
  • ABC War On Waste returned to screens and was the 11th most-watched show overall

In the show,  Craig Reucassel shines a light on the how damaging waste is both to our bodies and the environment.

In an interview with ABC news, Reucassel said he was shocked at just how much plastic is used in clothing.

“I think fashion continues to be one of the areas that shocks me the most,” he says.

“We’ve gone from fast fashion to now we have ultra-fast fashion”.

“Online organisations are pumping out an extraordinary amount of fashion at very cheap prices that’s fossil fuel-based but predominantly plastic”.

“Over 60 per cent of our clothing is made from plastic and in Australia, we continue to buy more and more and wear it less and less and we need to do the exact opposite — we need to buy less and wear it for longer.”

Australian presenter Dan Ilic was inspired by the show, even sharing a mildly depressing image of just how little fruit stickers have decomposed in a compost.

A total of 415,000 metro viewers signed up to watch the show, putting it 11th in the overall rankings and fourth for entertainment.
