Make crisps packets compostable.

Make crisps packets compostable.

All snack packets need to be compostable.

Why is this important?

If a packet is not disposed of correctly, it ends up as litter. A wild animal can mistake this for food, especially if it get into the sea and larger mammals can mistake a crisp packet for a fish (as was the case for a poor seal in 2018, it only took one packet to block his intestine). Current packets are not recyclable and it is a better option to make the packets compostable so that they can be placed into a brown bin for collection.
