Petition to Emily Plymin


BUNNINGS SAY THEY... "Make no claim to be perfect" AND "we are committed to reducing our impact and building a more sustainable business".... AND... "Our aim is to help customers learn how to care for the environment and live sustainably in and around the home." THEY SAY THEY HAVE...."Knowledge of environmental issues and sustainable practices"              THEY TEACH CHILDREN TO...."Get active in their local community help them learn about the importance of protecting trees and the natural environment." BUT THEY HAND OUT HUNDREDS & THOUSANDS OF BALLOONS EVERY YEAR TO CHILDREN THAT KILL  WILDLIFE AND POLLUTE OUR WATERWAYS AND OCEANS! Bunnings says that they've discontinued the use of helium balloons and instead attach sticks to balloons so they can’t be easily released. "More recently we have modified this stick attachment to make it more secure". But these "sticks" and "attachments" are PLASTIC and just as Hazardous to wildlife as the BALLOONS themselves! They can still escape their attachments and blow away and even if they dont blow they can still pop and drop as litter. There are so many environmentally friendly alternatives available and we ask BUNNINGS to please stop handing out BALLOONS. HERE ARE SOME GREAT ALTERNATIVES FROM THE WEBSITE OF "BALLOONS BLOW": Hand out a seed pack or Seedling Kites, garden spinners & Pinwheels Ribbon dancers Flags, banners and streamers ALL CAN BE MADE WITHOUT PLASTICS AND FROM THE CRAFT RANGE AT BUNNINGS! ASK BUNNINGS TO PLEASE STOP HANDING OUT BALLOONS!
