• Sustainable palm oil
    The preservation of the remaining rainforest is vital for the health of the whole planet, for slowing climate change, and to provide habitats for many endangered species. A BBC2 programme on 10 May will show the attempt to save the orangutans of Borneo, where most of the world's palm oil is produced.

  • Stop using plastic pet food pouches
    In bid for cheaper shipping and customer convenience there has been a broad shift in the past decade from selling pet food in easily recyclable cans to pouches. But, these pouches are almost never recyclable because they are made from a thin layer of aluminium sandwiched between layers of plastic. More than ten billion plastic-aluminium pouches, containing things like pet food and baby food are sold each year in the UK. Shockingly, less than one in 20,000 of these is recycled. The rest end up in landfill sites or they are incinerated. If Mars and Nestlé went took the simple step of going back to selling their pet foods in recyclable tins and aluminium trays this would prevent millions of tonnes of plastic being ploughed into our earth.

  • Public Transport Access
    In London most single and double decker buses are able to accomodate disabled passengers by lowering the step or deploying a ramp for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. It has been noticed that a large number of cities and towns outside of London do not seem to have a similar service for the disabled passengers in their communities. For example: in the Greater Manchester area, where some buses do have a step that can be lowered for disabled passengers, they either do not work or only do so intermittantly, therefore causing disabled passengers with crutches a lot of distress when entering the bus and where wheelchairs and mobility scooters are concerned, where the step cannot be lowered, those disabled persons are unable to travel. The picture above shows one of the latest buses to be put into service in Germany. If you examine it closely you can see that the set of doors in the middle has a sign for wheelchair and buggy access. This includes a deployable ramp. This design should be a standard requirement on public transport that use roads.

  • Keep the last bank in our Town
    This is the last bank in the community and must remain open and a fully functioning bank branch to allow the residents and businesses in the town to function, trade and undertake their financial affairs. Whilst there remains a Post Office and some banking can be undertaken through this two kiosk facility in part of the co-operative supermarket it is not an adequate or appropriate banking facility for our town. The nearest alternative bank is at least 2.5 miles away in the neighbouring town of Cannock. This branch is constantly busy and transport links and times of access will hinder the trading hours and conditions of businesses; increase the risk of crime with cash takings being transported greater distances and routes; isolate vulnerable members of our community with limited access to longer public transport journey times. Hednesford has been undergoing considerable housing and business expansion over the last few years and this will accelerate further in to the next few years including a significant increase in tourist and leisure visitors through the town to Cannock Chase an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and premium destination for mountain biking. Hednesford has always had a Lloyds, we implore you therefore to reconsider.

  • The Daily Mile: Don’t accept funding from fracking company INEOS
    Running a Daily Mile may be good for children’s health, but scientific studies suggest fracking is quite the opposite. A recent comprehensive report stated that fracking threatens the health of local residents "1 Growing evidence shows that [fracking] regulations are simply not capable of preventing harm" "2 Fracking and the disposal of fracking waste threaten drinking water" "3 Drilling and fracking contribute to toxic air pollution and smog (ground-level ozone) at levels known to have health impacts." http://concernedhealthny.org/compendium/ Not only that, fracking has been shown to have a detrimental effect on climate change, endangering children’s health and lives for years to come “World may hit 2 degrees of warming in 10-15 Years thanks to fracking”, Says Cornell Scientist https://www.desmogblog.com/2018/04/11/climate-change-two-degree-warming-fracking-natural-gas-rush-ingraffea For more information about INEOS Ineos 'misled' public over fracking in Sherwood Forest https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/jan/05/ineos-fracking-robin-hood-sherwood-forest?CMP=share_btn_tw Desmog Uk background on INEOS http://www.desmog.co.uk/ineos

  • PayPal should lift the ban on CBD Products!
    CBD is a legal product to sell and is an amazing health supplement! Despite this, PayPal have taken an anti-business stance that won't allow CBD product sales from certain businesses. PayPal states it "breaks the terms of its policies", however fails to show or explain where this is stated. Additionally you can use PayPal to buy CBD oil via a website owned by PayPal's parent company? A small farmer or oil producer can really benefit from the use of PayPal for their business, so you can't help but feel maybe they are being targeted and this is not right. I believe it's important for us all to do our part in stopping this from happening, please help by signing this petition and sharing with your friends. Thank you all!

  • Recycle ALL plastic sold in our local area
    I live in Leeds and only the plastics marked 1, 2 and 4 are recycled. I and many others want to recycle all plastics as around 50% of our grey bins are filled with plastics that the council will not accept. This is unsustainable and needs to be stopped.

  • Keep Fossil Fuel Companies Away from our children's schools and clubs
    We all know that climate change is a real threat to everyone and everything on this planet, and that the fossil fuel industry is the biggest cause of pollution, the increase of greenhouse gases, and of creating global warming. The industry is responsible for poisoning our waterways, oceans, air, and land. Also, a lot of the chemicals the fossil fuel companies extract are used for making plastics. Plastics are choking our oceans, killing our sea life, and contaminating the sea salt, which in turn will contaminate users of sea salt. We now have fossil fuel companies like INEOS, Cuadrilla, Third Energy etc., setting up Community Funds in areas in which they propose to carry out Hydraulic Fracturing: Fracking. There is increasing evidence that Fracking is extremely harmful to the health of our young people, and it has been linked to premature births, low birth rate, delayed brain development, nosebleeds, skin rashes, sickness, headaches, asthma, cancer, and infertility. This, as well as the environmental impact, as seen in parts of America and Australia, where Fracking is prevalent, links have been made to the pollution of aquifers, rivers, waterways, land (both farming and natural), air quality and earthquakes. The Fossil Fuel Industry has known about the damage it is causing, to our children's health, and the health of our planet since the late 80's, and has refused to change or act responsibly. By allowing these companies to sponsor school activities, children's football clubs etc., we are allowing them to subliminally promote themselves as fun, healthy companies that can be trusted in the eyes of our children, when in fact they are abusing our trust, and endangering our children. It is time we all started divesting away from fossil fuels, and the fossil fuel industry. One way of doing this is to keep these dirty industries, their logos, and their money away from our children's schools and leisure activities."

  • Stop plastic-based Chewing Gum.
    Chewing gum is made from plastic. Think how much chewing gum you've put in your mouth believing it was a natural substance. Think of how much you've thrown away thinking it will compost naturally over time. Originally, chewing gum was made from natural "chicle" gum, which biodegrades in under a month. However, modern chewing gum uses a gum base made from polymers which are synthetic plastics. This is not organic waste that composts, it is a hidden plastic in our food, it will not break down naturally, and adds to all the other plastic humanity continues to produce, purchase and discarded. I am calling on the manufacturers of all chewing gum to revert back to a natural gum base and ensure the product is 100% free from plastic. Sign the petition if you want to reduce plastic usage and agree with this proposal.
