Wondered if this would be something you would be interested in helping me with.
I have set up this petition to stop the plastic toys that appear on the front of kids magazines - the toys are such bad quality anyway but also awful for the environment and give the wrong message to kids already conscious of climate change.
Could you sign the petition and send to any friends you think would sign it? Possibly something to talk to schools
about also? Iíve found these magazines so amazing during lockdown and super educational but just end up taking the plastic rubbish off the front and hiding them/ donating them anyway!
My kids love magazines like Peter Rabbit, CBeebies, Peppa Pig and more. The content inside is educational, fun and entertaining. However, I HATE the plastic toys that come with them for many reasons:
It is always terrible quality that breaks easily; sometimes the paint comes off within seconds. It is also terrible for the environment - why do these magazines, which can sell themselves WITHOUT plastic tat, have to add this? It destroys our planet, gives the wrong message to kids already conscious of the environment and makes our kids think they need such disposable toys to have fun?
I want magazines to remove all plastic toys and packaging from the magazines, making them environmentally friendly and focussing on the amazing content inside. Kids will not notice the difference and our planet will thank you for it!
Please write to as many magazine publishers as you can to ask them to remove the plastic from their publications - we can make a difference to our kids future.
