Target: The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson

Petition Background (Preamble):

Greener Upon Thames is a community-driven campaign to reduce plastic bag use in the London Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston, make London and the 2012 Olympics plastic-bag-free, and pressure our Government for a ban or levy on single-use plastic bags.

Backed by politicians, schools, local community organisations and more than 500 shops and thousands of residents, we campaign to break the bag habits of millions in London and beyond by producing and distributing literature and infomercials, organising local events and liaising with international plastic-bag-free campaigns to raise awareness about the impact of plastic bags, excess packaging and waste plastic on the environment and future generations.
