action
The UK Government to introduce a ban on all non-recyclable packaging from 2022.
background
We call for action due to environmental crisis caused in the main by single-use plastics and demand the Government commit to an outright ban; most importantly in the food industry. We also call on the Government to set a target date for eradication of non-degradable toxic plastics before 2030.
additional details
Single-use plastics can be eliminated by introducing bottle deposit schemes, pollution taxes and the removal from sale of all plastic bags, including 5p schemes.Plastic use has impact on a global scale as recent articles have highlighted. It has to stop now!https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/nov/14/uk-to-investigate-human-health-impact-of-microplasticshttps://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/mar/12/microplastic-pollution-in-oceans-is-far-greater-than-thought-say-scientists
