Samantha Louise started this petition to UK Parliament

We must save our world, before there is no world left to save.

Worldatlas states "According to data from the Global Forest Resource Assessment roughly 80,000 to 160,000 trees are cut down each day around the world with a significant percentage being used in the paper industry"

Our consumption of paper can be hugely reduced by using less for inessential reasons.

The majority of us love to send and receive greetings cards, but with our growing digital world, can we manage without them?

The office for National statistics (2018) estimated that there is 52,403,344.8 Adults in the uk. Combine this figure with the GCA's (greeting card association) statement that in 2018, the average adult purchases 33 cards per year. This amounts to approximately 1,729,310,378.4 cards per year!! 

With the cards becoming more elaborate by adding decrotive plastics and glitter so they are more pleasing to the eye, we are further increasing the harm we cause to our environment.

Rainforest action network released a fact sheet which stated "An average of 137 species of life forms are driven into extinction every day in the world’s tropical rainforests. The forces of destruction such as logging, cattle ranching have all contributed to the loss of millions of acres of tropical rainforest. Animals and people alike lose their homes when trees are cut down. These animals are given no warning to move – no time to pack their bags – and most die when the forest is destroyed".

Although we recognise that agriculture is a huge part of deforestation, paper consumption considerably contributes to the extinction of these beautiful innocent animals, for human luxuries. 

When I receive a greeting card, it is displayed in my home for about 1 week before it is discarded. Myself, among many others would quite happily receive a message via text or social media instead.

I believe saving our world and our innocent animals is more important than receiving a greeting card. If you agree, please sign this petition to fight for our world.

Stop unnecessary forest destruction, the lives of our animals are just as precious as our own.
