Climate Action Now
Make a bigger effort to stop climate change by pushing for the use of renewable resources.
Why is this important?
Climate change is at our doorstep and not enough is being done to help the situation. Ireland's climate action plan is the ambiguous aim to reduce carbon emissions by 30% between 2021 and 2030, but I see little progress being made. As young climate activist Greta Thunberg said, "People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth," which truly highlights that we need to do more, and fast. I am making this petition in hopes that we can ban any non-recyclable packaging materials in Ireland by 2025 because time is valuable and we aren't feeling the heat.
