Petition Action

Ban selling drinks bottles that aren’t made out of a sustainable material.

Petition Details

Create a ban for all drinks bottles or containers that aren’t made from a sustainable, biodegradable, compostable, 100% recycled or recyclable materials. This could include packaging it in recyclable cans, rice husk, recyclable cartons, coconut wood etc. Single use plastics must be avoided.

Additional Information

There is a massive global issue regarding single use plastic and plastic pollution, and a large proportion of this waste is produced by plastic bottles and drinks. The aim is to steer people away from continuously buying plastic bottles, especially for water, and instead to buy drinks packaged in materials that can be absorbed back into the earth. This would be a huge step towards making our country green and environmentally conscious, which is so important at this time.
