Ban the sale of 5p plastic bags in supermarkets and provide biodegradable alternative

This petition had 910 supporters


The five pence charge was introduced to combat the environmental challenge of plastic waste disposal. It has provided us with a step in the right direction, however, if the focus of this campaign is on helping the environment why are the five pence still plastic, some even thicker plastic than before. The five pence bags should be biodegradable and this material sourced sustainably. This petition demands that these plastic offerings are changed to recycled paper or likewise.
