Recyclable crisp packets

Recyclable crisp packets

Currently the majority of crisp packets in the UK and Worldwide are not recyclable so they have to go to landfill. As a nation the UK alone consumes approximately 6 billion packets a year. Imagine what the figure would be for Europe or Worldwide. 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.

Reasons for signing

  • The way forward
  • Reduce. Re-use. Recycle. There is nowhere near enough emphasis placed on tackling the producers of un-recyclable packaging. How many times have you checked an item's packaging, only to see 'not currently recycled' on the label. Another piece of needless landfill...
  • if you cant recycle it ....dont make it. if you have to make pay a subscription for every instant to the government and all cleanup charities to deal with the waste.
