As part of my Lent Promise I started a new petition yesterday. It’s very similar to the old (unsuccessful) one. Today’s Lent activity is to publicise said petition so here we go.
In early September 2018 I petitioned the government on their own petition website. I had six months to gather as many electronic signatures as I could, requesting that parliament ban black plastic packaging before the end of this year. I really don’t see why it’s allowed. Although I try to avoid single-use plastic in general I still use a fair bit but the BLACK stuff is wicked. Most local authorities can’t recycle it so it goes in with general rubbish. It then gets buried or burned. Why do we have it? The answer seems to be because ‘food looks better in black trays’
