• Demand Walkers Produce Fully Recyclable Packaging Before 2025
    I contacted Walkers regarding this, to which they replied that they’re “working tirelessly to tackle waste challenges and are committed to 100% recyclable, compostable or biodegradable packaging by 2025”. But as they already have compostable packs made from potato skins and discards, why will it take another 7 years to produce recyclable packs? The Walkers factory in Leicester produce 7,000,000 packets of crisps every DAY and sell 60,000,000 every WEEK! That’s over 20 BILLION crisp packets that will go to landfill before their target date of 2025. This is simply unacceptable.

  • Force manufacturers to list ALL ingredients and a nutritional table on alcohol beverages
    This is incredibly important for consumers so that they can make an informed decision on whether drinking alcohol is something that they would like to do. At present we have no idea what they're putting in alcoholic drinks.

  • Pensions before Dividends
    The corporations are not doing the ethical thing by looking after their workers before shareholders. Examples, BHS, Carillion. At present Sainsbury' has given out £1.4B in dividends to it shareholders over last five years but the pension is running at a £974M deficit.

  • Display Carbohydrate value on front of all food packaging
    ALL carbs end up as sugar in our blood. To concentrate solely on 'sugars' (traffic-lighting) is misleading (and in some cases cruel) to many who strive for a healthy diet for themselves and their families. Clearly showing total carbs will help diabetics avoid serious complications. It may even guide the food industry to make ever better changes to prepared food. There is a growing low-carb movement (not just diabetics) as people are becoming aware of the links to weight management and other significant health benefits. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in the UK (I am reg blind as a result of diabetes retinopathy) and reading the carb value can be difficult enough (even for those with great vision) as the writing is often so tiny. In most cases I end up taking a picture so I can then zoom in. This is very frustrating.

  • Boots to pay staff in London the London Living Wage
    I have spoken to many Boots UK staff, who are all struggling to pay their bills from month to month. I think it is awful that members of staff who work 37.5 hours a week, are in a position where they are struggling to pay basic bills. Some even have to go to food banks to support their families. This needs to change. Staff members who currently work in London get approximately £3000 less than the London living wage a year. Based on the 2016-2017 Government figures for social housing in London, this equals to around 26 weeks rent. This is half a year's rent that staff are having to find by making cuts to their already tight budgets.

  • Save M&S Newmarket
    It is vital the store remains because many elderly people without access or an understanding of modern technology live in the town and for them this is one of their main suppliers of basic groceries like bread and milk. When I was younger, my grandmother would buy me my favourite treats from M&S; therefore it too holds a special place in my heart. This is why it is so important the store must remain open!

  • Get serious about recycling.
    When it comes to re-cycling, Gedling Borough Council rates a poor 260th out of 350 English local authorities. Gedling re-cycles only 36.7% of its domestic waste compared to the national average of 45.2%. Gedling’s announcement that it intends to be a ‘Plastic Clever Council’ is welcome but has to be seen in the context of its recent closure of 6 local ‘bring’ recycling sites and the earlier cancellation of its commercial recycling collection service.

  • Ban the sale of single-use plastic plant pots in garden centres and plant nurseries.
    An estimated 5 million pots are wasted each year. They are expensive to recycle and inevitably end up outside of conventional routes of waste management, therefore adding to plastic residues in water courses and oceans. It's a problem that shouldn't exist. Biodegradable alternatives are already easily available and at low costs, made from materials such as bamboo, rice husks, cardboard, coconut and straw. Plastic pots are designed as single use packaging so even if they are re-used they have a very short lifespan and are ultimately un-recyclable.

  • Stop Advertising with Guns and Weapons
    These images are plastered all over the tube, buses, bus shelters, newspapers, magazines etc. Subliminally de-sensitising young minds that this is ok and the norm. Young minds and easily manipulated minds that see the hero carries a gun or knife. There has been 11 fatal shootings already this year in London, and endless knife attacks resulting in fatalities not to mention acid attacks. Though this may not be considered an important change we need to change the influence culture has. We can't change the films and games themselves but we can change the way they are sold to us, glorifying killing. And these small changes will contribute to the change in society. I have started an instagram page documenting what I see called. https://www.instagram.com/gunsonthetube
