Hi, I'm Martin.
You're watching Newsround and we've
got loads for you today.
First up - the Prime
Minister's announced plans
to try to get rid of more plastic
waste over the next 25 years.
One thing Theresa May wants
to do is to make some supermarket
with no packaging at all.
Environmental groups say
if the plans aren't made
law they won't work.
So why is everyone
talking about plastic?
Plastic is everywhere. It takes a
long time to get rid of. A simple
plastic bag can take hundreds of
years to disintegrate and in that
time it can do a lot of damage,
getting into the oceans and harming
animals. And there is so much of it.
In the UK alone the amount of single
use plastic wasted every year would
fill 1000 of its famous Royal Albert
Halls. The problem is not just here.
The plastic is washing up on beaches
all over the world. We are trying to
tackle the problem. You can help by
trying to find ways to reduce the
amount of plastic used by recycling
We want to know what you think.
Should some plastics -
like water bottles
and drinking straws -
be completely banned?

and give us your views.
Now if gadgets are your thing then
get ready because BBC technology
reporter Chris Foxx has sent us
a special report from CES,
one of the world's biggest tech
conferences, for a quick round up
of the latest inventions.
What do you think of these? They are
emoji headphones. While you are
listening to music you can let
people know what you think about it.
There is the suitcase which follows
you around automatically so you
don't have to carry it. I asked the
company if they would make a
schoolbag version but they have no
plans at the moment. If you like
gaming you might like this body
virtual reality suit. It helps you
feel when you get hit in a video
game. That's horrific! It's
finished! An unusual idea for a
souvenir. A snow globe you can put
yourself in. The company took a
video of me and locked me in a snow
globe forever. This kit lets you put
together your brain games console to
help you learn how they work. It
lets you playing some -- play some
simple old-fashioned games. But it's
a complicated process to put it all
together. This show is about
companies are showing off what they
think will be the next big thing.
Not all of them are good ideas. And
not all of them will make it to the
shops. So, what do you think of
these? Happy emoji or thumbs down
Ok prepare for an overdose
of animal cuteness!
More than 500 baby animals
were born or hatched
at Singapore zoo last year.
It's released footage
of some of them.
And the hippo is a bit of a looker.
Just look at the energy
in those otters!
Whereas the orangutan seem a little
more chillaxed hey!.
Next, 2017 saw so many brilliant TV
shows hit our screens
but which ones did you lot,
the British viewers love the most?
Well, here's a clue...
Hidden beneath the waves,
right beneath my feet,
there are creatures
beyond our imagination.
Yes, Blue Planet 2
was the most-watched
TV show of the year.
A chart-topping 14 million
people saw episode one
of the wildlife series,
which included dramatic footage
of walruses fighting to find a home,
and dazzling scenes
of surfing dolphins.
Second place went to
Strictly Come Dancing.
13 million people watched the final,
which was won by actor Joe McFadden
and his dance partner Katya.
Close behind in third place
was ITV's I'm a Celebrity,
Get Me Out of Here!,
which attracted an audience of 12.7
million for its launch episode.
Britain's Got Talent
and the New Year's fireworks made
it into the top ten,
but 2016's top TV show
The Great British Bake Off
missed out completely.
The delicious baking contest did
still bring in millions of viewers
after moving to Channel 4
and changing its judges
Let's hope 2018 is packed full
of even more incredible TV moments!
That's us for today.
We are back tomorrow morning at
See you later.
