Require companies to annually publish plastic usage (product and packaging)

Petition Details

Just as companies must publish financial audits, an audit of the amount and types of plastic it uses for creation of product and packaging/every day use is of vital public interest and should be made to be published in detail so we consumers can make informed choices on where our money is going.

Additional Information

The problem of plastic pollution is well documented, it harms a multitude of animal species and has even entered the food chain. Companies make choices on what materials they choose to produce with and package with. As consumers we demand transparency and auditing by law on the amount and types of plastic (e.g. recyclable and non recyclable) being generated by each business in all aspects to be made public each year.
