You can help! By signing this petition you can add your voice to the call for banning plastic bags in the UK. Every bit helps and each and every one of us can make a difference. 

The average single use plastic bag is used for just 12minutes! And, in the UK, we use over one BILLION of them a year.

In 2019/20, the Tesco supermarket chain alone issued over 42 million plastic bags (statista.com)

Single use plastic is something each and every one of us can do something about to help the environment. The plastic bag ‘tax’ has done a great deal to reduce their use but If supermarket chain Morrison’s can go a step further and ban plastic bags (including the so called ‘long life’ plastic bag) altogether, why can’t other supermarkets do the same?

Join the call for, not only the big supermarket chains, but ALL stores in the UK to ban plastic bags!

Plastic bags take up to 500 years to fully degrade; they end up in our water systems and oceans or releasing poisonous gasses in landfill. 

China, Hawaii and California are among the places where measures are already in place to ban plastic bags in stores. It’s time the UK took action too. A ban on plastic bags is a simple measure that can make a vast difference to plastic pollution.

Keep the conversation going...

AND it doesn't stop there. Paper bags are often considered better alternatives to plastic but if we start to produce billions more paper bags to replace our plastic bag shopping dependency, we risk a whole new environmental problem. So please join the conversation in how we can further be part of the solution. What can we do to help? Bring our own bags? Most produce in stores arrives in boxes which get broken down - ask if you can use one of their boxes. Maybe design a trendy granny trolley and help bring them back into fashion! Talk to people and help encourage behaviour change.

Please be a Planet Superstar today and add your name to this petition calling for a ban on plastic bags in all UK stores and ask your friends and families to do the same ⭐️

Then join the conversation on how we can continue to help be part of the solution.

Be A Planet Superstar is a family run campaign. As our 10yr old Be A Planet Superstar Co-founder says: "Come on, Let's do this, let's save this planet!"

Thank you:-)

Update: Thank you so much for pledging support for our campaign against plastic bags. Our aim was to raise awareness and encourage conversation around how we can all help. It doesn't just stop at banning bags. We need to be part of the solution as to what replaces them. Providing billions more paper bags is not the answer but reducing the plastic bags is an important first step in changing behaviours. We are now pointing our supporters to On Planet Patrol who are taking the issue all the way to parliament with their BIG BAG BAN campaign. It would be amazing if you could add your name to their campaign as well as ours so we can start to see some real results. See link in comments below! Thanks from all at Be A Planet Superstar
