Labour has put climate change and environmental destruction at the the centre of all policy making. The meeting covers the key environmental threats, the menace of plastic pollution and how a Labour will tackle these issues locally, nationally and internationally.

The World Economic Forum warn that at least 8 million tons of plastics leak into the ocean each year, resulting in about 150 million tons of plastics pollution in the ocean today. If no action is taken, the ocean could contain as much as one ton of plastic for every three tons of fish by 2025. By 2050, the oceans would actually contain more plastics than fish.

We will be exposing the hypocrisy and short comings of Tory policies on the plastic pollution and the environment. We we also be proposing ways we can all beging to tackle plastic pollution as individuals, local communities. We we also be outlining the urgent government policies that are needed to tackle plastic pollution and environmental destruction. This is a vital meeting for all our futures. Please try and come!

We can make a start here! Please sign the petition below:

From turtles entangled in six pack rings to whales with stomachs full of plastic bags, the effects of plastic pollution can be devastating.

UK supermarket Iceland has announced its own-brand packaging is going plastic-free.

By ditching plastic packaging, supermarkets have the power to lead the way in dramatically reducing the amount of single-use plastic produced.

Add your name to the petition and tell UK supermarkets to follow Iceland’s lead and go plastic-free.
