PETITION: Make crisp packets recyclable!

April 17th, 2018

We call upon Walkers and other manufacturers to change the materials for their packets to one which is recyclable or even more preferably a non-plastic environmentally friendly material

Why is this important?

Currently the majority of crisp packets in the UK and Worldwide are not recyclable so they have to go to landfill. As a nation the UK alone consumes approximately 6 billion packets a year. Imagine what the figure would be for Europe or Worldwide. That’s an awful lot of landfill and poison for the environment.

Crisp packets have been found intact after 33 years. Imagine during that time the effect on wildlife and the environment. At todays consumption rate in 33 years time there will be 200 billion crisp packets either sent to landfill or polluting our oceans. Many will be ingested by animals, fish or birds leading to a slow lingering death.
