UK supermarkets currently generate 900,000 tonnes of plastic packaging every year.
But our oceans can’t stomach any more plastic!
From turtles entangled in six pack rings to whales with stomachs full of plastic bags, the effects of plastic pollution can be devastating.
Some supermarkets have trialled and announced plastic reduction measures, but we need industry-wide action across the UK.
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 the petition and tell UK supermarkets to ditch throwaway plastic packaging.
