In recent days, Germany has announced a blanket ban on all single-use plastic products and as a leading country for renewable energy and positive environmental change, we feel that the United Kingdom should lead by example; ushering in a new era.

Single-use plastic represents the epitome of today's throwaway culture, usually ending up in landfills and waterways. Plastics do not biodegrade, they break down into toxic micro-plastic particles that poison our oceans, and research shows the massive negative effects plastic not only has on the planet but also humans.

As COVID-19 made its unfortunate appearance in the UK, we entered a country-wide lockdown in March with uncertainty on our future. Since doing so, we've witnessed the effects of liberated wildlife, enjoyed a much cleaner atmosphere with increased visibility and less fine particles, and our rivers have been flowing with clarity never seen before.

It's time to stop beating around the bush and work towards positive environmental change with a blanket ban on single-use plastic products within the UK, with aims on implementing this next year. #bethefuture #seethechange #saveourplanet
