Peter Casey calls for fellow candidates to ditch plastic posters

EU Parliamentary candidate Peter Casey has called on all election candidates to “do the right thing for the environment” by ditching plastic campaign posters.

The Midlands-North West candidate has urged fellow candidates to ensure there is a “good clean fight”, at least as far as the environment is concerned.

He is further calling for local authorities to place outright bans on the erection of plastic campaign posters. Mr Casey is also calling for the introduction of a tax on all single-use plastics that are not biodegradable.
