What the Petitions Committee is doing

Petition Ban plastic bags in supermarkets, and other retail shops.

I would like the government to ban plastic bags in all supermarkets, takeaway restaurants, and other shops. I have found that having reusable plastic bags isn’t enough because people still throw them out. And small businesses still use them. The government must enforce this because businesses won’t.

More details

Climate change is real, there is lots of evidence on that. If we want to help stop climate change we MUST stop it quickly. Climate change is also something I am very passionate about, because this is about saving our planet, our lives. Plastic bags make up a huge amount of waste which is contributing to the death of our planet, our home. THE only one we have. Waiting for shops to make this change is not enough. The government must take action.
