Provide recycling for medication blister packs

Why is this important?

Hundreds of thousands of medication blister packs currently go to landfill - they are mixed materials (plastic and foil) and therefore not recyclable with household recycling. Walkers did it with crisp packets, now it's the turn of the pharmaceutical giants to take responsibility.

Reasons for signing

  • After all the hard work you've put in Cheryl this is a total blow!! We will not stop 💪🏼
  • We need to really start looking after our planet properly.
  • Packaging has needed a complete rethink for 20 years. This is just one small aspect of a far bigger problem that has been left unaddressed. We need to legislate now for minimal, reusable and recyclable packaging. This is easily achieveable. Single use packaging that isn't even easily recycled is unacceptable and unnecessary.
