Display environmental impact on all packaging and bags containing plastic

Petition Details

The global plastic problem is only increasing and recycling is not going to solve it on its own.

Additional Information

All packaging containing plastics including bags should display the message “This product contributes to the destruction of our oceans and this impacts human health”, so people see the environmental impact this packaging creates.

We need to transition to biodegradable plastics such as hemp. Those who live oblivious to the situation deserve education as well as future generations being given a cleaner planet to live on. I want the government to do this to encourage people to demand sustainable solutions to the plastic problem to be able to hand future generations a better planet, that not only benefits humans but the environment and all other species.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
