Greenpeace Africa handover Plastic Ban petition to top political parties

- | 6 months ago

GREENPEACE Africa volunteers from across South Africa visited the head offices of each of South Africa’s top political parties to deliver a petition calling for a ban on single-use plastic.

The petition, started earlier this year, called for the African National Congress (ANC), Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Democratic Alliance (DA) and Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) to prioritise a plastic ban in the parliament following this year’s election. To date, the petition has garnered close to 11,000 signatures.
