I want Government to put pressure on UK food businesses to stop marketing food that is packaged in plastic materials. The Earth is choking and a ban on plastic has to come from the top and I want the government to take action NOW.
Why is this important?
The amount of plastic being used is clogging up the oceans and putting its sea creatures in danger. We've seen the horrific stories of sea turtles being suffocated by plastic bags and fish with bits of plastic and beaches strewn with bottles, toys, lighters and straws. These materials take hundreds of years to break down. We can't go on like this. It has to stop.
