This petition has changed platforms to TOKO for promotional purposes, here is the new link: https://www.toko.org.nz/petitions/end-plastic-wraps-on-nzqa-exams 

NZQA distributes thousands of exams each year and each is wrapped in plastic. This plastic is biodegradable according to NZQA, however research shows that biodegradable plastic can not break down without UV rays and high temperatures. Most, if not all, of this plastic will end up buried in landfill, killing our sea life or marring our parks. We should be teaching the younger generation the importance of sustainability and being conscious of the environment, and when their education provider does not adhere to these values, it does not bode well for the future of this planet. Sign this petition to show your support of the environment and to urge NZQA to switch to recyclable paper envelopes or reusable zip lock bags. Together we can make a change!
