Ban plastic bags in the UK

This petition had 214 supporters

Like so many people l have been horrified and distressed by the sights seen on the recently televised programme Blue Planet II. The sight of plastic bags, plastic bottles, and all manner of other refuse now littering our seas, land, and infecting our marine and wildlife is haunting and distressing. We have to do something about it now. Our beautiful planet is now effectively a rubbish dump and l am as guilty as the next person for helping to make it this way.

Whilst charging for plastic bags has reduced their use by some 85% surely the time has come to ban them completely as they have done in other countries.

By signing this petition now you and l can help to make a positive difference and save our future marine and wildlife from choking and starving to death in a sea of plastic.

Thank you.
