SUBJECT: GLOBAL PLASTICS EMERGENCY - supermarkets must lead the way
To Whom It May Concern,
Last year scientists confirmed we have remaining to us only a 12 year window to tackle climate change, and to make sufficient lasting and widespread changes to secure our future.
Any large corporate entity - such as yours - has the power, due to your significant market share in the UK, as well as your monetary and policy leverage, to affect supply chains and to make powerful changes to what we consider ' normal' in the mass market.
These changes are not a matter of choice, they are a matter of desperate urgency. Anyone who has influence in the mass market and who fails to make these changes, will have future generations to answer to, including your own children, and their children's children.
Biodegradable and sustainable mass packaging options already exist. There is absolutely no doubt that your Research and Development teams are already fully aware of this.
Right now, we know that plastic, even when 'degraded' stays in our earth and atmosphere for up to 600 years. poisoning generations to come and killing off entire biospheres. This is simply unacceptable in the 21st century.
You, as a market leader have the power, influence and responsibility to effect ground breaking, earth friendly, future safe solutions by fully researching, funding and deploying sustainable packaging options NOW.
Anything less is an absolute failure of faith, imagination, industry, and the power to lead an earth friendly mass packaging market in the 21st century.
