Currently the majority of crisp packets in the UK are not recyclable so they have to go to landfill. As a nation we consume approximately 6 billion packets a year, that's an awful lot of landfill and poison for the environment. We call upon Walkers and other manufacturers to change the materials for their packets to one which is recyclable.
Why is this important?
Crisp packets have been found intact after 33 years. Imagine during that time the effect on wildlife and the environment. At todays consumption rate in 33 years time there will be 200 billion crisp packets will either be sent to landfill or polluting our oceans. Many will be ingested by animals, fish or birds leading to a slow lingering death.
