Posted February 02, 2019 12:01:38 When you buy a new car, home or appliance, it can be a tricky business.
A lot of the time, the paint is pink.
But what if you’ve got a pink toilet paper dispenser or a pink washing machine?
What if your washing machine is pink too?
If you have a pink wash basin, what if it’s pink too, too?
We’ve all had pink water bottles and pink washing mops and pink clothes.
But in 2018, the government decided it was time to change the colour of household objects, and so, the NSW government started issuing guidelines to make sure it didn’t go into the same shade of pink.
The NSW government has also issued guidelines for car paint.
The NSW government says it is trying to eliminate “pink pollution” in household products by 2020, which means the new guidelines will help remove “pinks” from household products and packaging.
It says the government will continue to test for and remove pollutants that cause pollution and will continue testing for and removing pollutants that make the products “pinky”.

The state government is encouraging the public to “use the colour code of household products in their household” so that “pickers can get rid” of pink “poison”.
The NSW Environment Minister, Scott Emerson, said the guidelines were a good first step in the right direction.
“We want to make it easy for our customers to make decisions about whether their products are safe and they don’t need to be tested,” he said.
“The new guidelines also reflect that the government’s commitment to protect our environment is now a reality.”
However, Mr Emerson says there is still a long way to go.
He said the NSW Government’s current advice for the colour and the packaging of household goods is “not very clear”.
He also said that the NSW Environment Department is working on an updated guidance for household products. “
What we’re looking for is consumers to make an informed choice about what their products should be painted in, what their packaging should be, and how they can achieve compliance with the guidelines.”
