More than half of all turtles and seabirds have plastic in their stomachs. The only way to stop it, is by outlawing the killer plastics.
The most powerful thing you can do is request a meeting with your local Member of Parliament (MP), and ask them to ban single-use plastics.
Your local Member of Parliament will meet with you if you ask. Unlike an email, we all know that a personal connection can leave a lasting impact. Use our form to request a meeting today.
What to put in your email:
- Introduce yourself and whether you are an individual or representing a group
- Explain what you want to meet with them about (eg: that you’d like to meet with them to express your views on protecting our Reef)
- Request a time to meet with your MP at their earliest possible convenience.
- Follow up your email with a phone call the next day, if you haven’t heard back. If you sent a letter, follow up with a phone call after five days.
We’ll send you an email with some ideas for what you can talk about in your meeting.
