Petition Action

Ban On All Single Use Plastic

Petition Details

We need a ban on all single use plastic e.g. plastic packaging for fruit and veg, plastic bottles, plastic on cans of alcohol, plastic bags in supermarkets. Half of these things end up in land fill sights, oceans and on land in places where animals INHABIT. We need to change before its too late.

Additional Information

We need serious changes to be made to the way in which things are packaged as their are many animals that are being hurt or killed by plastic on land and in oceans (even plastic in our fish we eat). Plastic is ridiculously bad for the environment and needs to be banned urgently. We need change in this country in the way which things are packaged and there are so many alternatives to single use plastic (Recyclable or Biodegradable Plastic, Paper / Cardboard). We can't carry on like this much more
