Would anyone like to co-sign my petition on banning the extraction and use of peat in the UK? I only need 5 signatures for it to be considered for publication.

Any UK resident or British citizen overseas can sign.

(When the petition has 21 signatures it won't be able to get any more until it's been approved by the petitions people, so if the link doesn't work that might be why.)

I feel like I should mention that there are already a couple of petitions about peat on the petition site. It's just that I don't understand why none of them go far enough!

petition.parliament.uk/petitio

Eh, rejected because it's too similar to existing petitions. 🤷

Sign these instead:

Ban the use of peat in horticulture and all growing media by 2023. petition.parliament.uk/petitio

Ban all extraction of peat for horticulture by 2022. petition.parliament.uk/petitio

I think mine should be allowed because it's not limited to horticulture, grmblgrmbl

@cassolotl ah, I didn't realise that. I feel like I've signed so many peat free petitions the last couple of years, but they have been very horticulture focused. Have signed this one. You are right, the ban needs to go further

@GwenfarsGarden The petition people might decide that it's too close to one of the others and declare it a duplicate, but hopefully not! 🤞 Thanks for signing! :)

@cassolotl yours does say something different, so hopefully they will allow it. Once it's live, let me know and I'll promote it
