Make All Food Packing Eco-Friendly

Make All Food Packing Eco-Friendly

My name is Freya, I'm 10 and the environment is very important to me. I believe that existing food packing uses too much plastic. Instead we should use a material that is Eco-friendly and that biodegrades. Cardboard would be a good alternative but there other alternatives that will keep food air tight.

Why is this important?

This is important to me and the future of the planet because all the plastic packaging that is used is currently buried in a landfill or chucked on the side of a rood. This happened to me once driving to meet my cousins with my Nan there was lots of bags of rubbish thrown into some laybys. But that could all change if we use cardboard.

Reasons for signing

  • There is far too much plastic packaging and many people are too lazy and irresponsible to take it home, wash it and recycle.
  • It's always short sighted to have so much packaging. It is there for such a brief time, like Christmas, and it's then thrown away unless recycled. By ensuring that everything is degradable, or using much less plastic, then many recyclers would be much happier with that.
  • Because it make sense, why wouldn't we, good luck:-)
