Ban plastic bags in London

This petition had 5,775 supporters

Plastic bags are the culprit of ecological destruction and non-biodegradable waste that will scar future generations health, livelihood and the planet's future.

Plastic bags and toxic waste are exported to third world countries, out of sight. We do not see the real destruction of consuming plastic bags. If we did see our streets filled with plastic bags, we will have a different perspective on this matter.

It is cheaper to have reusable cloth bags due to now having to pay 5p per plastic bag when shopping in nearly all big stores. Thus, it is economically cheaper to shop without plastic bags.

London as the heart of the UK has to set a correct and leading example on sustainability and ethical consumerism. Let's do this right and move closer to our ideal city.
