UK, Ban all Non Recyclable and Single-Use plastics!

This petition had 110,659 supporters

We the people need to call on the government of the United Kingdom to set an example to the world and Ban ALL non-recyclable and single- use plastics.

The world’s annual consumption of plastic materials has increased from around 5 million tonnes in the 1950s to nearly 100 million tonnes today. (WRAP)

The amount of plastic waste generated annually in the UK is estimated to be nearly 5 million tonnes. (WRAP)

Most families throw away about 40kg of plastic per year, which could otherwise be recycled.

Non recyclable plastic ends up in landfills or the ocean where they were remain FOREVER harming animals and the environment. 

If we don't ban the use of non recyclable or degradable plastic now then it may be too late later.

We are smart enough to know that it's bad for us and we are smart enough to find alternative packaging and containing methods for the things we use.
