Petition Introduce a national awareness day specifically against plastic in our seas.

People are increasingly aware of how plastic, in all forms, is endangering sea and marine life. It doesn’t decay, possibly for centuries and we’re adding millions of new tons every year. Soon there will be more plastic than life in the sea.

More details

A National Awareness Day is the answer; a day on which all anti-plastic in the sea organisations and individuals could come together to maximise awareness. Britain’s ties to the sea are strong (historical, cultural, economic, geographic) and it would be great if our Government was the first to announce such a national day. Having a National Awareness Day is a win, win, win; for the oceans, people and politicians. There is currently no anti plastic in the sea day, we need one.
