They waste our natural resources, pollute our environment and harm marine life in our oceans. Isn't it time we stopped wasting plastic bags? Please sign this petition asking the government to put a charge on plastic bags!

I massively agree with this. They've managed to ban them in Dehli, why can't we?

One thing that I like about paper maps, e.g. OS 1:50,000 scale, is that you can see both detail and a wider view at the same time without having to keep zooming in and out.
