We need to make it law that all disposable / single use plastics are biodegradable products by end of 2019.

The rate of international pollution of the sea and beaches is critical. We can lead by example. Developing countries such as parts of Indonesia are already taking action and have proven it is possible to act quickly without detriment to retail trade. 

That includes, but not limited to, carrier bags, food bags, drinking straws, freezer bags, cotton buds, tooth picks, drink mixing sticks, vegetable bags in shops and supermarkets, packaging for items such as razor blades and cosmetics, packaging materials, toy packaging, liquid cartons such as milk bottles. 

The evidence is irrefutable that plastics are causing near irreversible damage to the environment, ecosystems and marine wildlife.

It is time to take action and ensure there is a positive future for this planet and the next generation.
