Petition Require bold environment warnings on wasteful food and drink packaging.

All wasteful food and drink packaging should be labelled in a bold red warning triangle "Not Waste-Free".

By wasteful we mean not recyclable nor compostable. The label should be on the front panel.

Waste-free living is what we want, is an Earthshot goal, and should be easy!

More details

Searching for tiny recycling logos or faint "not currently recycled" excuses, particularly for those with poor eyesight, is a pain! The red triangle will make waste instantly obvious, helping us to (a) bin it correctly, not contaminating other well-sorted material (b) avoid buying it, and (c) push suppliers away from it.
While much packaging today is proudly waste-free, it should become the norm, we should be able to assume it is waste-free unless loud and clear warnings state otherwise.
