We're all #SickOfPlastic. A Dáil and Seanad committee will this week begin considering a Waste Reduction Bill that would tackle plastic waste. We've joined forces with @zerowasteireland (http://bit.ly/FB-ZWI), VOICE - Voice of Irish Concern for the Environment and Uplift - People Powered Change to get a joint petition over 5,000: http://bit.ly/SickOfPlastic. There are clear steps that Minister Denis Naughten, TDs and Supermarkets can take to cut plastic waste. If we campaign hard, 2018 can be the year we turn the tide on plastic pollution. Help make it happen by signing the petition: http://bit.ly/SickOfPlastic. We want to see: A deposit and return scheme on plastic bottles. A levy on single-use plastic items, like take-away cups. A ban on micro-plastics in cosmetics and care products. Supermarkets reduce the amount of plastic packaging they use.

Minister Denis Naughten says his climate action plan is a "living document", rather than set in stone for 5 years. SHARE if you think he should begin revising it immediately in light of this report from the Climate Change Advisory Council.
