Ask your MP to vote for a world leading environment law
Right now, the government is rewriting the rules that protect people and planet in a new Environment Bill. And your MP has the power to make it as world leading as the Climate Change Act.
This could be the law that sets the UK on course to restore nature, end plastic pollution and act on the climate emergency.
But as it stands, the government could get away with breaking its own laws while some departments could just ignore the environmental consequences of their decisions.
Our MPs have just one day in parliament to fix the Bill and close these loopholes. Will you ask your MP to vote for a strong Environment Bill that we can really be proud of?
- Polluters must pay for the damage they cause. It’s everyone’s responsibility to protect our environment and stick to the same rules.
- The proposed new watchdog must be strong enough to ensure the government can’t ignore our environmental laws. We can’t let future governments take that power away.
- Targets must be set to ensure rapid action to avert the climate and ecological emergencies. The government must publish clear long- and short-term targets that we can hold it to, including on plastics.
