Ban disposable plastic in the UK

Ban disposable plastic in the UK

As a nation and as human beings with a huge responsibility for the future of the Earth and for ensuring that the wildlife of our planet continues to survive we must stop this senseless production and use of disposable plastics for the sake of convenience and take a step back to the days of using, washing and reusing traditional tools, bags, boxes, bottles, plates and containers.

Why is this important?

France has recently committed to this cause and we should follow. We don't have time to wait, the planet and it's inhabitants l - including humans - are dying, drowning in plastic and we need to stop our own slow demise.

Reasons for signing

  • It's time for the UK to step up and make smarter decisions for the future of the environment.
  • We only have one planet, and we need to treat it properly. As humans, we need to be less selfish and take more responsibility for our space on this earth.
  • I can't stand the way plastic looks or feels. It looks cheap, nasty and dead. I'd rather go back to using less processed materials in everything and sacrifice a bit of 'modernity' in order to live in a more natural environment.
