My firm belief is to burn them, leaving them on landfill promotes land pollution and the threat to wildlife and biodiversity...plus the stuff doesn't degrade properly or never will.

BUT! I chose 'other' because I was feeling rebellious. I reckon that all non-recyclable plastic should be sent back to the company you bought it from. For example, buy a bottle of Shampoo from Sainsburys and send their non-degradable bottle back to their head office! (or just don't buy it of course). It's a good way of taking a stance, they'd probably just dump it in the bin but it would be them hurting the environment!

But overall I'd say burning, so I have two votes lol - 'other' being the counted one

I chose other but since doing so I changed my opinion. So now I'm stuck. Sad

I like what Shinx said about sending them back to the manufacturers though. That would soon get them making friendlier items!

You can click 'Cancel Vote' underneath the Poll, that's what I did lol!

If enough people did send back to the manufacturers, I'm sure they'd get very upset and soon change lol!!

It would with a lot of plastics, so it's a question of which practice is more harmful I suppose.
