Closed petition Ban Polystyrene and other single use plastics!

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.

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