No more single-use plastic

LETTER

My name is Gabriel and I am a student at Campion College. On Fridays we do Impact Projects, around things we have a passion for. This semester I have chosen to take part in a project centred around trying to remove single-use plastic bags and straws in Gisborne.

Single-use plastics are affecting our oceans extremely negatively and this needs to be fixed. Each year about 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean and this figure is increasing with each year that passes. This is a big problem and we need to spread the word so that we can begin to repair the damage we have caused.

The primary purpose for my project is to remove single-use plastics. I would love to see a ban on plastic bags as a final result. It would also be great to see the whole country give up on single-use plastics.
