My son Flynn (8) is doing a project on plastic pollution in our oceans. We watched the ‘Plastic Ocean’ documentary and were appalled at the extent to which plastic is ending up in the food chain and causing painful and unnecessary suffering to sea birds and creatures. 

Better gyms give out single-use pvc shoe protectors in their swimming pool areas. In fact they state pool users must use them. These are thrown in the bin and end up in landfill, and can ultimately reach our rivers and the sea. 

Please sign this petition if you would like Better to replace these shoes with alternatives made from biodegradable material (paper, bamboo), to encourage pool users to bring flip flops and/or to start charging for the existing shoes like we charge for bags in our shops. 

Come on, we deserve Better!
