Petition Ban artificial grass immediately in response to the 25 Year Environmental Plan
We remind the government of their 25 Year Environment Plan, which ''sets out our ambition to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste''.
Yet again, in response to sinister climate and biodiversity trends, we request a change in current policy and a ban on the use artificial grass in gardens.
Artificial grass products adversely affect our environment; causing flooding, heating, water pollution, waste, and harm to biodiversity.
Current policy prefers to 'help people and organisations make the right choice rather than legislating on such matters', yet the industry continues to grow.
In artificial grass, we have a clear example of 'avoidable plastic waste'. Surely, there can be no justification for delay of a ban.
Failure to address this issue now will be an historic one.
