School's petition demands curbs on plastics

Environment-conscious students at Ysgol Dinas BrĂ¢n in Llangollen are doing their bit to save the planet.

A petition they organised calling for the abolition of single-use plastics was formally presented in Parliament on their behalf earlier this week by Clwyd South MP Susan Elan Jones.

The petition call for a halt to the use of non-essential plastics in all UK schools by the end of this year and also demands the immediate banning of Styrofoam from all schools.

This is the culmination of a long and continuing campaign led by the student council to make all schools sustainable and environmentally responsible in a bid to protect the future generations and prevent a climate emergency.

Ms Jones said: "The petition was very widely supported in the school and it has been excellent to work with the school council and other students on this. 

"I am hoping to continue to do more campaigning and practical initiatives with them on environmental issues."
