Ban the use of non-biodegradable plastics in packaging
So many products come with all sorts of needless packaging, especially plastic which will remain on this Earth for years upon years. Plastic bottles will last on this planet for 1,000,000 years according to Wikipedia, with 6 pack holder rings lasting for around 450 years and with plastic bags hanging around for around 2 decades. Bio-degradable plastic bags on average degrade in only around 75 days, leaving nature, Earth and the world's seas, where 14 billion pounds of plastic is dumped each year, clean and safe for wildlife to thrive. Bio-degradable plastics have been invented yet they are still yet to be used as often as they should be so:
This petition's action is to persuade the government of the UK to ban or heavily tax the use of non-biodegradable plastics in packaging. Please sign this petition if you agree with its purpose, thank you.
