Switch to Bio-degradable packaging materials now

This petition had 215 supporters

Everyday we buy products packed in materials that are not biodegradable or recyclable. Packaging like this can only be tossed in the bin, and it ends up in landfills or in oceans. This waste is slowly poisoning the Earth's underground and overground water channels, the soil, the air, plants and animals and us too. We are creating an impending disaster for ourselves by polluting the very environment we depend on for life! The retail giants that are responsible for creating the most waste need to step up and change their packaging to sustainable and biodegradable materials first, with others to follow. These biodegradable materials are already being produced and are readily available so why aren't they being used on a large scale ? The South African government needs to make laws to BAN retailers from using plastic and other packaging which is not biodegradable or recyclable. The actions we take now will determine our very immediate future, WE NEED TO MAKE THIS CHANGE NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!
