The UK must match the rest of Europe and ban single-use plastic

Reason for signing

  • I litter pick our local Yorkshire beach regularly and a huge proportion is related to takeaway plastic packaging, often fragmented: food cartons, wrappers, parts of plastic cups and mini forks/spoons. From the amount on just a few 100 metres of shoreline it is scary to think how much must be being dumped!
