Switch to organic or compostable packaging for takeaway food and drink now

We are class 6B, a group of students from St George’s International School in Luxembourg, and we strongly disagree with unnecessary plastic being used in places around us. We want our local fast food restaurants and coffee shops to "take away" the huge amount of plastic packaging they use.
Plastic waste is a severe problem and it is only getting worse. Don’t you think that plastic is becoming a catastrophe?
In our class, we have been researching waste plastic packaging and its effects on our environment. It is a real threat: when it is thrown away it either ends up in the ocean or in landfill, or it is burnt. All of these options are unfavourable for our planet.
Plastic left on land or in the sea takes hundreds (or sometimes even thousands) of years to decompose. This destroys sea life, as you may have seen in the news recently.
When these restaurants serve you plastic packaging, they are shoving straws and plastic cups down the poor throats of little birds and sea turtles. How do you feel about this?
However, there is an alternative. They could stop using plastic materials for packaging and replace it with organic materials, or even better, compostable packaging which is now made by many companies in Europe and North America.
Wouldn’t you feel great if the fast food restaurants YOU use contributed and helped make the world a better place, for humans and animals alike?
Wouldn't it be great if everyone could buy products from these places without being worried about the damage to our environment?
Sign our petition. Help make a change. Tell them to TAKE AWAY PLASTIC!
