As a Delaware citizen, I support the prohibition of free single-use plastic bags in Delaware

    1. Petition by

      Brandywine Sprouts, a chapter of Roots & Shoots International

As a Delaware citizen I support a statewide prohibition in Delaware of the provision by retail stores of free non-biodegradable, single-use plastic bags and urge statewide elected officials to pass legislation to that effect.  This action will promote the health and safety of wildlife and watersheds, protect the natural beauty of our communities, conserve our oil supply, increase the longevity of landfill space, and reduce trash management costs to taxpayers.

      Plastic is a real threat to the environment visually, fills up landfills, and is something we can do to help reduce harm to the planet.

      I currently use my own reusable bags whenever possible, and decline offers by retailers to provide a plastic bag. I believe that banning the use of free bags by retailers will help improve the natural environment.

      As a society we have created more filth than the world can handle. There is already too much plastic in the world but let's start taking steps now to stop adding to the problem.

      I am deeply concerned about the impact that plastic garbage is having worldwide. It is clogging our oceans and streams disrupting the life cycles of aquatic and marine animals. We have no effective way of cleaning up the accumulating mess this is making. Our best approach is to the production of use of this non-biodegradable products that are covering our land and waterways with non-degradable garbage. It is time to clean up our planet. Please be a stand for a healthy and beautiful world for ourselves and our children.
