PETITION AGAINST PLASTIC USAGE
The harmful chemicals released from plastic products throughout their entire life cycle can pose a serious risk to humans and the environment, including when waste is not properly managed, finding its way to air, water and soils.
Plastic bags are a major cause of environmental pollution. Plastic as a substance is non-biodegradable and thus plastic bags remain in the environment for hundreds of years polluting it immensely. It has become very essential to ban plastic bags before they ruin our planet completely.
Approximately 300 million plastic bags end up in the Atlantic Ocean each year, causing over 100,000 sea turtle and other marine animal deaths each year
Banning plastic bags will help reduce plastic pollution. We all must take small steps consecutively for this big change to happen. One such small step is this petition. By signing this petition you are not banning plastic bag use, you are fighting to eliminate further distribution of plastic bags in large grocery stores. Save a life, save a generation, save the Earth.
