I am writing to express my concern at the scale of plastic pollution in our oceans. While i am doing what i can on a personal level to avoid single-use plastic, i can only do so much.
I would like to call on you and Parliament to introduce tough legislation to tackle the plastic crisis now and not in 25 years time.
I urge you to force polluters to pay for the plastic clean-up, to impose high levies on corporations that package ttheir products in unnecessary plastics and to ban non-recyclable plastics from being used in everyday products and packaging.
I want every child to grow up in a world where plastic isnt contaminating our oceans and waterways, killing animals and causing a risk to our health.
Please help make this happen. Be the change our planet needs.
