Bournemouth Council Ban the plastic straw and single use plastic cups

Bournemouth Council need to stop Bournemouth beach front cafes, kiosks and restaurants providing plastic straws and single use plastic cups to customers. Many of these items invariably end up on the beach and enter the sea.

Why is this important?

Plastic pollution is unnecessary, unsightly and deadly. Plastic pollution is leading to toxic chemicals entering the marine ecosystems, leading to ingested plastics which kill marine wildlife, and will impact the safety of our seafood.

Reasons for signing

  • I am against any kind of plastic thrown away into the ocean and seas, I see every day in the summer mountains of unnecessary rubbish on our beaches,and everyone who leaves the beach has to go past at least one bin! Also sea creatures die because of this practice
  • Why not use biodegradable material? Why not use paper cups? Do this for the sake of our planet.
  • Sustainable future...
