Stop selling clothes and items with plastic tags that damage the quality of the products.

It is estimated that around eight million metric tons of plastic waste goes into the oceans each year, and this comes from a number of sources. By 2050, the amount of plastic in the world's oceans could weigh more than the entire fish population according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
Plastic tags on clothes and other items cut through the product to the other side, damaging the quality and in some cases making it significantly less usable. Recyclable string tags could be tied around loops in the item such as is done in some store already, without damaging the item whilst keeping the necessary labels attached whilst in store.
This would not only reduce plastic waste going into landfills and the ocean, but also improve the quality of the items we pay for.
This is why I am calling on all major retailers to stop using plastic tags in their products, suitable alternatives can be used that aren't at the expense of the environment and the consumer.
