P-06-1238 Ban Polystyrene and other single use plastics!

Awaiting first consideration

 

This petition was submitted by Nafisa Derradji, having collected a total of 130 signatures.

 

Text of Petition:                  

On the 3rd July 2021 the European Union have banned a range of single use plastics including Polystyrene, Plastic cutlery, Plastic plates, straws, cups and even plastic earbuds. There is a complete ban across all 27 member states.

 

I think Wales should follow in their footsteps and we should ban these items too.

 

Many takeaways in Wales still use 100s of polystyrene containers daily because they are the cheapest option.

 

Please support this.

 

Additional Information:

Polystyrene cannot be recycled and has catastrophic effects on the environment; it is also toxic when left in the environment.
