We’ve all seen tragic images of animals killed or suffering due to plastic multipack rings. Finally now there’s a solution - Carlsberg beer just announced they’re ditching the plastic rings and replacing them with a recyclable glue. That’s why I’m now calling on Britain’s top selling lager brand Carling to immediately follow their example to stop polluting our planet and making animals suffer. Our wildlife is drowning in plastic. Hundreds of thousands of seabirds, marine mammals and sea turtles become trapped in the rings or die eating them. One study estimates that 90% of seabirds on earth have eaten plastic. Put simply - these plastic rings are death traps. According to the great Danes at Carlsberg, their removal of the plastic rings will cut the overall amount of plastic in their multipacks by a whopping 76% - we are talking about 1,200 tonnes less plastic needing to be disposed of on an annual basis. This is the equivalent of 60 million plastic bags! Therefore, it’s clear that it would make a huge difference to our planet if other major players decided to follow suit. Carling is the UK’s favourite lager by sales - they have a duty and a responsibility to show they care about animals and the environment by scrapping these plastic rings immediately. If Carlsberg are doing it, so can they. Sign here to tell Carling to immediately ditch their plastic multipack rings. To re-use an old advertising cliché: If Carlsberg did environmental policies ...
