Rejected petition Reduce non-recyclable plastic used by supermarket chains throughout G.B.
The majority of food and drink packaging in supermarket chains are in one time only use plastic packaging. Which are not recyclable. They end up in landfills or the ocean and surely there must be a breaking point where we can not sustain this way of living.
Additionally plastics all stem from oil, another non sustainable resource. There are plasticesque products out there made from various different sustainable and recyclable components, for example, Bath University have made a plastic from sugar and carbon which is biodegradable and won't contribute to landfill and oceanic waste.
