You currently use over XXX items of plastic in a year!
That sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, UK households consume nearly 1.2 million tonnes of plastic packaging in the UK every year and only 45% is collected for recycling. It's virtually impossible to avoid throw-away plastic today. That’s why we need to demand that corporations commit to phasing out throw-away plastic and embrace reusable packaging.
Sign our petition supporting the introduction of a deposit return scheme for plastic bottles. A scheme like this helped remove 1-2 billion bottles from Germany’s bins and streets and could do the same here.
Many of them end up in our oceans - harming marine life and threatening fragile ecosystems.
