My name is Angela Barron (previously Graham), I live in Central Scotland and enjoy making the most of the countryside. I\'m fed up of broken glass ruining my outdoor pursuits and I know lots of other people are too. Ideally I\'d like to see an end to all litter but in the mean time I\'d like to see a reduction in the broken glass on our streets and countryside. I\'ve noticed that the vast majority of broken glass I see is from Buckfast bottles and that is why I decided to start this particular petition. Many other producers of alcoholic beverages popular with under-age drinkers(such as white ciders and various alco-pops) have already made the switch to plastic, which shows their commitment to social responsibility - it is my sincere hope that Buckfast Abbey will do the same.

If you contact the abbey directly please be polite, it is not their fault that consumers choose to abuse a tonic wine that is intended for medicinal use.
Please do contact your local government representatives to lobby them for their support in this campaign. You can find out who represents you by visiting www.upmystreet.com Watch the recent BBC programme The Buckfast Code: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00q2qmh/The_Buckfast_Code/
