- School Headteacher and local MPs
In school, there is so much plastic packaging unnecessarily being used to package food. There are many alternatives such as paper or biodegradable plastic. An estimated 3 billion plastic bottles are thrown away each year and a study conducted by the University of Hawaii has demonstrated that when plastic is exposed to direct sunlight, it can react to produce the harmful greenhouse gases (GHG) methane and ethylene, which will subsequently increase the rate of global warming. While scientists are pursuing a variety of innovative solutions to fight against plastic pollution, the best course of action would be to cut down on the use. Plastics are seen everywhere we go and form part of everything we use and consume, but they must be phased out if we want to avoid the most serious environmental effects associated with them.
we are going to use these signatures to send to MPs and the school headteacher.
NOTE: you only need to put your name, country and email!
