How your MP can show support for the Plastic Pollution Action Plan

The important thing to remember is that your MP needs to publicly support the Action Plan backed up by legislation in order for their support to be meaningful and effective. Here’s 2 simple ways you can get them to show their backing in public.

  1. Post a picture of them holding the Action Plan placard on social media. The placard in the picture above has all the wording needed to spell out exactly what the MP is supporting. So a simple post of a picture of them holding it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram will be enough. Encouraging people to share it will be helpful, as it starts to generate a buzz and encourages other MPs to follow suit. Remember to use #PlasticPollution as well so more people can find your post. You can order an A2 poster version of the placard on our website, or download and print one here.

  2. Feature them in the local paper. Use this template press release to send to your local news outlets. Include a photo of the MP with the placard if possible, and get them to sign off a quote which spells out their support for an Action Plan backed up by legislation. There’s a sample quote in the press release you can use.
