• Aberdeen FC: Ditch single use plastic
    By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our seas. But Scottish Premiership football clubs still give out thousands of single use plastic items every single matchday. Plastic cups, straws, stirrers, bags, they all end up clogging up our oceans and filling landfills. Football supporters shouldn't be forced to contribute to plastic pollution, just because they want a drink or some food at a match.

  • Remove plastic packaging from celery in the UK
    Us and our families drink celery juice every morning for its healing properties and use 2-4 bunches each per day. Between us that is 2,920 packets thrown away a year, minimum. Most of our celery is bought from Sainsbury's and if they stop putting it in plastic we will commit to buying all our celery from them , as will our families and encouraging our followers to do so also as we are documenting our healing via social media and a blog. Of all the all the Americans we see posting about juicing, their celery is always tied with string in the stores so why in the UK are we causing ours to sweat in plastic and damaging our environment in such a catastrophic way?!

  • Support clean air for Bath
    We have heard plenty from those unhappy with measures intended to improve air quality. The council needs to know there are also many people who support cleaner air for Bath, even if it does come at the price of some personal cost or inconvenience.

  • Petition 3GS to Refund UK Residents Who Have Been Unfairly Fined
    In Nov 2017 my husband placed a cardboard box in the wrong bin in good faith, thinking that he was helping me out on a busy day. It turned out that that box in question had my business address label on it, and he'd put it in a domestic recycling bin. I was fined £600 and threatened with court. There was no procedure for appeal, and 3GS was both unclear about my supposed "offence" and extremely intimidating. My story was covered in the national papers and appeared on "Do The Right Thing" with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes. We call on 3GS to do the right thing now! We demand that unfair and disproportionate fines be reviewed where a complaint is made, and that refunds are given to members of the UK public. 👇🏽 Where there was no intent to fly tip. For example: The person fined was acting in good faith. They believed they were placing an item in the correct bin. ✔️ When the person who received the fine was not the person who committed the alleged offence. For example when a spouse or person unrelated to the business placed an item in the wrong bin in good faith. ✔️ Where existing waste disposal facilities were insufficient and common sense was not used by officers. For example: Where signage on bins was not clearly visible. Where signage was confusing. Where bins were broken. Where bins were overflowing. Where animals were able to remove waste from bins. ✔️ Where 3GS officers behaved inappropriately. For example: Where 3GS used intimidation. Where officers did not give a member of the public their lawful opportunity to pick up litter before being fined. Where any legal right was denied to a member of the public in a public space. Where assault or physical contact of any kind took place. ✔️ Where 3GS officers lied to members of the public. For example: Where 3GS officers claimed to have visited a property when they had not. When 3GS officers claimed to have CCTV footage when they did not. When 3GS officers claimed to have called the police when they had not. ✔️ Where 3GS the telephone staff behaving appropriately or misleadingly. Where 3GS staff lied to members of the public. Where 3GS staff implied a criminal court appearance or conviction without supplying proof of fly tipping/ littering. ✔️ Where insufficient proof was supplied by 3GS. For example: Where there was no CCTV footage of a person placing an item in the wrong bin. When photographic evidence did not prove that the accused person had placed waste in the wrong bin themselves. ✔️ Where paperwork was incomplete, incorrect, excessively pressing or insufficient. For example: Where at 3GS failed to produce an initial fine but subsequently sent residents supposed reminders of alleged late/ unpaid fines. Where 3GS demanded payment in an unreasonably short time via a “reminder” and the initial fine had not been issued or received. Where 3GS breached data protection by copying and pasting the wrong person's data into an email and sending to another member of the public. ✔️ In Summary: We demand that Martin Jerrold, Managing Director of the Red Snapper Group / 3GS puts a complaints procedure in place to review complaints. Where appropriate refunds should be made to members of the UK public who have been unfairly or disproportionately fined.

  • O2 Arena: ditch single-use plastic cups
    At a recent Mumford and Sons gig at the O2 Arena, disposable plastic cups were the only option on offer and bar staff were reluctant to refill them. The O2 Arena can hold up to 20,000 people which means thousands of plastic cups are being thrown away after every gig! We all need to play our part in fighting plastic pollution and every organisation and venue should take responsibility for reducing plastic waste. Music lovers shouldn't be forced to contribute to plastic pollution, just because they want a drink at a gig. This petition should be seen as a call to action to all music venues and events.

  • Abandon the Library Consultation
    Libraries matter to communities. To make informed decisons about libraries the Council needs to know what people think. But this consultation will not do that. The consultation is stuff full of jargon. The language is confusing. It should be in plain English. Readability of text can be measured using a SMOG test. That's "Simple Measure of Gobbledygook". The Sun newspaper has a SMOG value of less than 14. The Express is less than 16. The Guardian and Telegraph is around 17. The SMOG value of Worcestershire County Council's consulation is an amazing 44! Ordinary people have little chance of understanding it. But a good consultation should be about getting ordinary people's views. The Council should therefore abandon it and do it properly!

  • Lower the Speed Limit on the A6 in Westhoughton to 30mph
    The stretch of the A6 between Wingates and Chequerbent roundabout currently has a 40mph speed limit. This is a built up area which in recent years has had a lot more housing built nearby thus making it very busy with school children and families crossing the road at peak traffic times. Remember the advert which stated "at 40 miles an hour, there’s around an 80% chance I’ll die. Hit me at 30 and there’s around an 80% chance I’ll live." In 2016, 2186 children aged 15 or under were injured or killed whilst walking during morning or afternoon peak times. Under Section 6 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act, our council has the power to make a traffic order reducing speed limits where people live, and where children walk and play. Please sign this petition to ensure that cars are driving at reasonable speeds which allow a much reduced stopping distance and a vastly reduced danger to our children.

  • Instal Planet First Zones in Supermarkets
    In the present climate of corporate greed, consumer power is more likely to save our world than token schemes by supermarkets or platitudes by politicians. Just as we have ‘Free From’ counters nowadays, the areas I propose can be called ‘Planet First’ zones. Then, at at the exits, provide areas where customers can divest themselves of unwanted packaging. It might work. It might even give a competitive advantage to a store that tries it. It would also be a good test of the public’s concern.

  • Protect our children from dirty air in Cardiff
    Air pollution is a public health crisis, with illegal and harmful levels of air pollution across the UK. We need national and local government to act to clean up our air and make our towns and cities a healthier place to live for everyone but especially for babies and children. Air pollution affects us all, from when we are in the womb through to old age. It is linked to premature births and can stunt lung growth in children. Air pollution can trigger heart attacks and strokes, worsens asthma attacks and causes lung cancer. Babies, children and older people are more vulnerable to the impacts of air pollution. We need the Council, with the support of national government, to take urgent action to clean up our air to protect the health of children and babies.

  • Save our Libraries Essex (SOLE)
    Essex County Council have announced plans to close 25 libraries and to turn a further 19 over to be run by local communities to save money. My local library, in West Mersea, employs 2 people for 21 hours a week. Not only will they lose their jobs if these closures go ahead, but so will all the staff at the threatened 44 libraries. My library is thriving. It is always busy with people of all ages reading newspapers and periodicals, borrowing books, DVDs and CDs, accessing the internet, researching their family ancestry and speaking to others. Libraries are fantastic assets to the community and need to be saved. No libraries in Essex should be closed or downgraded to being run by volunteers The elderly population of Essex need these libraries. Many do not have computers and some of them may not speak to anyone else in their day. We need local libraries in local communities which can be accessed on foot or bike, by all sections of society. Please think again before implementing these closures.

  • Use Paper Bags Instead of Plastic Bags
    Looking at research on this topic we discovered that 150 million small plastic bags are being used in the UK every year in supermarkets. We believe that if supermarkets provided paper bags for fruit and veg this would dramatically reduce plastic waste, hence improving the environment including our oceans. We as teenagers are passionate to do something about this issue and to look after the planet we will be living on, in the future.
