Coles: Stop giving tiny plastic products to children

Coles: Stop giving tiny plastic products to children

Dear Coles, stop giving tiny plastic products to children and start taking plastic pollution serious by pledging to not launch a promotion like this again.

Why is this important?

Coles is clearly not serious about plastic pollution if they think giving tiny plastic replicas of plastic products to children is okay.
Coles has pledged to reduce their plastic packaging on fresh produce and has introduced a bag ban to “do the right thing for the environment”.
Clearly not being serious about plastic pollution, they are giving out little, plastic-wrapped plastic toys to children, promoting processed, sugary and salty foods.
These replicas of brand store products are more than likely to be thrown out. Not being conventionally recyclable, they will then end up in landfill or litter our environment, affecting nature and wildlife. This promotion is a perfect representation of how much Coles doesn’t care about polluting our environment and wasting valuable resources.

How it will be delivered

We will print the signatures on recyclable paper and deliver them to Coles stores wrapped around unwanted plastic toys.

Reasons for signing

  • How are we to progress and create a safer, healthier and more sustainable future when we are giving vulnerable developing minds products that are both harmful to them and harmful to the environment. Especially when Coles as claimed to commit to less waste and plastic products. This is absolutely unnecessary, and clearly a marketing scheme and form of manipulation targeting the most vulnerable. Very disappointing.
  • because i like burning coal and giving out plastic, plastic is the best
  • This is the most disgusting case of consumption for landfill's sake I have ever seen. Stop it now.
