UK Government: Fix the UK’s plastic waste crisis now.

The UK produces more plastic waste per person than almost every other country in the world – 2nd only to the US.

We can’t cope with the amount of plastic waste that companies are producing, so the government is allowing it to be dumped on other countries who can’t cope with it either. It’s a national scandal that less than 10% of our everyday plastic actually gets recycled in the UK.

British plastic is getting dumped overseas and burned in the open air, creating serious health problems for local people. It also gets into the ocean, killing marine life like seabirds, turtles and dolphins.

Tell our government to fix our plastic crisis in a way that doesn’t harm people - or the planet.
