Whenever I am sent out to the shop to get food, my Mum always asks for loose produce, eg. without wrapping or plastic. Sometimes I can find some loose food stuffs but most of the time, it is all wrapped in plastic. Garlic is put in netting, then labelled with a huge plastic sheet. Apples are put in a plastic casing then wrapped in bucketloads of plastic. Pears are the same. Garlic has an outer coating, so I do not see the reason it should have netting and a plastic label on it. Surely we know it is garlic? Apples are very often sold loosely so all apples should be sold separately.

Pears, are a slightly trickier matter. Pears are mushy, I agree, but surely shops and markets can put them in 100% recyclable paper bags? Or maybe in a protective "bed" in the shop and you take them out when you buy them. That way it is reusable and can use it for every truckload the shops get.

Broccoli is also wrapped in plastic which by no chance can be recycled. I can not even rip the material apart on many occasions. 

Namely, Amazon and other delivery companies are also on my list of complaints. A few weeks ago, we got delivered something fragile from Amazon as a Christmas present for my Mum. We opened it to check it wasnt broken and what I saw was this: the box, then inside the box, approximately 12 layers of seperately put in bubble wrap. Then, between the big and small box there was exactly 25 centimetres of pure empty space. Surely if the object is fragile they should not have put 'miles' of space between the boxes? It is such a waste of cardboard. Then I opened the smaller box containing the item and inside that was again, lots of plastic. The flimsy non recyclable type that is completely useless. 

I address this matter because i care. I might sound like a middle aged woman ranting on about how they don't wrap stuff properly, but I am a young girl who wants to see her grandchildren live in a clean world.

Please sign this petition if you are one of those people. I am not an avid Save the Planet type person, so when I spot something, it's kind of serious.

Please sign if you want to live in a clean, happy, healthy world. Thank you and stay safe
