Ditch throwaway plastic packaging!

type:Petition

According to Greenpeace, UK supermarkets currently generate 800,000 tonnes of plastic packaging every year. But our oceans and marine life can’t stomach any more plastic! Greenpeace claims. 

From turtles entangled in six pack rings to whales with stomachs full of plastic bags, the effects of plastic pollution are devastating.

The UK supermarket chain Iceland has announced its own-brand packaging is going plastic-free.

By ditching plastic packaging, supermarkets have the power to lead the way in dramatically reducing the amount of single-use plastic produced.

Add your name to Greenpeace’s petition and tell UK supermarkets to follow Iceland’s lead and ditch throwaway plastic packaging.
