save their lives, stop animal testing on medicine!
Animals shouldn't be treated this way to satisfy our results, they're vulnerable, unprotected under the needles. There's are so many alternative ways of testing medical products, they're more accurate, affordable and environmental friendly such as vitro methods. We believe animals are not born to be tested in laboratories with unknown disease they already had. Let's make a change not only for the animals but US! Save more lives.
Sign a signature, save an animal
We are a group of Year 5 students who want big companies to stop using animal product testing. Animals are suffering for products being tested on them and we want YOU to help us stop that NOW. There are other alternatives for animal product testing that don't harm any living creatures, such as cell culture and human simulators. If we collect enough signatures and enough people boycott these companies that test on animals, the companies will need stop animal product testing. Once we have collected signatures, we will send them to companies and follow up to see if they have stopped animal product testing.
Reduce plastic by asking retailers to switch cotton bud stem from plastic to paper
Plastic cotton bud stems are one of the top 10 item of plastic, sewage-related debris on our beaches and rivers - yet retailers could help prevent this by switching the stick from plastic to paper. In the marine environment, plastics can be eaten by marine life, often with fatal consequences. Plastic is found in the stomachs of Loggerhead Turtles, Seabirds and many species of caught fish. And pieces that don't get eaten break down into microplastics, forming part of a dangerous plastic smog in our seas. Now we need to make sure the cotton bud manufacturers in India change the stem from plastic to paper... which is why we need to show them how many of us support the switch to paper! Even paper stem cotton buds shouldn’t be flushed down the loo. But if they are, they're less likely to pass through sewage filters and will quickly biodegrade if they escape. So please sign and share our petition to ask the Indian retailers to Switch the Stick from plastic to paper. This campaign is inspired by successful drive in UK led by CityToSea.org Special mention to Rob Greenfield via whom I got to know about CityToSea's inspirational story.

Remove petroleum-based FD&C colors from all children's antibiotics, ADHD medications, allergy medications, cold remedies, pain relievers, vitamins, and toothpastes.
WHY do ADHD medications contain FD&C dyes that, according to the FDA, exacerbate ADHD symptoms? More American parents are demanding higher quality and affordable foods, medicines, and healthcare for their children. Mothers, in particular, control most household budgets, and our decisions make a major impact on food and medication sales around the world. As a mother of a dye-sensitive child, I'd like to see the major players in this scenario improve upon a few of the greatest health discoveries of modern times: I am challenging all American pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers to remove petroleum-based FD&C colors and flavors from all children's antibiotics, ADHD medications, allergy medications, cold remedies, pain relievers, vitamins, and toothpastes. "FD&C" (food, drug, and cosmetic) colors add no medicinal or nutritional value to children's medications, vitamins, and toothpaste. They are added for aesthetic purposes only, or to lure young consumers to their brightly-colored bottles of vitamins emblazoned with cartoon characters. But the real problem with non-nutritive additives such as synthetic colors and flavors is that they are made from petroleum, and are linked with a long list of health and behavioral problems in children. Synthetic food colorings such as Red 40, Red 3, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2, and Green 3 have been linked to cancer, behavioral disorders, hives, eczema, asthma, mood swings, bed-wetting, aggression, sleep disturbances, migraines, nausea, vomiting, lowered zinc levels, ADHD, hyperactivity, learning problems, and reproductive problems. Some children's toothpastes also contain D&C dyes such as Red 28 and Red 33 that are NOT approved for use in food, but are still absorbed through children's tongue and gums DAILY. Red 3, found in drugs and candy, was partially banned by the FDA at one time for being a known carcinogen, but is now approved again for use in food and drugs. Incidentally, it's also listed as an insecticide. Imagine your child has a painful ear infection or pneumonia, or they need surgery, and the only antibiotics and pain relief available contain red or yellow dyes. Pink liquid antibiotics, red allergy tablets, and purple cough medicines are the standard offerings in the U.S. Even "off-white" capsules contain yellow dyes, which are contaminated with carcinogens. Synthetic flavorings are also petroleum-based and cause similar reactions to dyes, but are sometimes not even listed in the ingredients. Unfortunately, families with sick kids cannot simply reach for an alternative brand of antibiotics, like they can with macaroni and cheese or candies. Nor can they whip up their own recipe at home. Pharmacies are limited in their ability to find dye-free medications such as amoxicillin, azithromycin, Tylenol, Zyrtec, Benadryl, and ADHD medications. Families whose children are severely reactive to synthetic colors must either pay up to ten times as much to have their antibiotic prescriptions filled without dyes at a compounding pharmacy, or opt for traditional medications out of desperation - and watch their child suffer with horrific and painful side effects for up to two weeks. Some children's medications are needed daily, like allergy tablets. But most children's medications are needed sporadically, as with fever or infections. However, the ADHD medications, gummy vitamins and toothpastes that our children are exposed to daily are no better for them than the petroleum-tainted antibiotics and cold medicines. In fact, synthetically-dyed and flavored vitamins are hardly better for children than candy in some respects. Children's vitamins and toothpastes contain sugars, synthetic petroleum-based dyes, synthetic petroleum-based flavorings, and synthetic preservatives.We may not let our children indulge in candy daily, but vitamins and brushing teeth are a different matter. The FDA has no idea what this type of daily exposure to dyes will do to a child over a lifetime. And the few dye-free alternative vitamins on the market are so expensive that most American families cannot afford them. The excuse of higher cost for substituting with natural dyes is even weaker when it comes to pharmaceuticals, compared with food manufacturers...Pharmaceutical companies need only to leave the antibiotics and ADHD medications an unadulterated white (no blue dye for brightness or yellow dye for creaminess, please). Even for vitamins, clear liquids and white tablets or powders that can be mixed into a favorite beverage are more cost effective than synthetically dyed versions. And of course, white toothpaste works just as well as blue sparkled paste. If you need to differentiate the various doses, use an indented or dobossed code, as is already in popular use. We demand an affordable dye-free choice from pharmaceutical companies. We can make our own dye-free electrolyte drinks and comfort foods when our little ones are sick. But we can't make our own dye-free life-saving antibiotics and allergy medications. And certainly not ADHD medications! For some kids like Rylie, two weeks seems like a short time to suffer the effects of dyed medications. Read her mother's heart-wrenching story of how they solved the mystery of her ongoing neurological and health problems by ditching the dyes. See my list of Scientific Research On Food Dyes for studies dating from recent years all the way back to the 1970s. In that list you will find a comprehensive collection of studies performed on each FDA-certified synthetic food color, published by the Center For Science In The Public Interest. I envision a day when the cure is better than the disease. A day when parents don't have to choose between cheap yet agonizing convenience, or budget-busting peace of mind. You have a choice, Big Pharma: Either #DitchTheDyes or lose your market share as more families demand dye-free healthcare!
Boycott companies "Boycotting" YouTube's advertisment program
We vow to boycott the purchasing of any products from any company boycotting YouTube's Adsense program on supposed "moral" grounds. This will take effect immediately until your YouTube ad revenue is turned on. We also request a statement from your company expressing allegiance to the spirit of our Bill of Rights and Constitution specifically the 1st Amendment. And an acknowledgement that like every citizen of this great country your company has a SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY to honor the 1st Amendment and Bill of Rights. Simply stated we believe that this move to "demonetize" content creators is thinly veiled CENSORSHIP. As your companies "supposed moral stance" on "racist rhetoric" or "violent content" is not reflected in "mainstream media advertising" where countless movies, television shows, news casts, music etc display images, concepts, acts and verbiage dealing in racism, sexism, materialism, greed, violence, profane language, explicit sex acts, innuendos of pedophilia, endorsements of war and countless other hideous, insidious, profane and immoral acts. Furthermore the companies mentioned have histories of engaging in scandals and illegal activities themselves. HSBC for example laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists groups. GSK China bribery scandal. AT&T spying scandal and the 100 million dollar fine it paid for "misleading consumers" These are but a few examples in a LONG LIST OF CORRUPT AND IMMORAL activities engaged in by said companies. The hypocrisy is palpable. The timing questionable. The and the end result is an ANTI AMERICAN, anti freedom, anti free market, anti human result. We see this as nothing more then "globalist, fascist" power grab. With the intention of quashing the ever growing independent media and entertainment complex. As you companies political, social and economic interests lie in the preservation of the "Corporate Media Establishment" aka "State sponsored media" We request that the following companies reinstate their Revenues to Youtube in order to lift out "peoples boycott" on your products. Simple steps can be taken in order to reduce ads being displayed next to "unethical" content. This does not have to include punishing whole segments of the YouTube community and CENSORING unpopular opinions. ArgosAudiAvivaHavas Group UK froze all of its spend.

Urge Companies to Ditch Plastic and Find Alternatives
Plastic is the number one trash problem we have been faced with in our generation. It is in our oceans, landfills, lakes, it blows around our land and is being found in almost all living creatures. It is nearly impossible to go shopping and not buy plastic of some sort. It is time for things to change on a corporate level, it is time for companies to start switching over to other alternatives. There is technology that exists that give us alternatives and it is time for these large companies to start utilizing these technologies. In signing this petition you are making a stand to demand that companies find new solutions and stop being part of the problem. You are also stating that you yourself are going to look for alternatives to plastic and try to work toward a solution as well. We are all affected by the over use of plastic in our world. In a study commissioned by data journalism outlet Orb, 83% of tap water samples collected from over a dozen countries on five continents tested positive for microplastic. In a US study they found microplastic in 94% of tap water. There are about 300 million tons of plastic produced annually. There are studies that are researching the effect on marine life and birds like this one, Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization. They said "So much plastic trash is flowing into the oceans that 90 percent of seabirds eat it now and virtually every one will be consuming it by 2050." In 1960 plastic was found in only 5% of birds. During this study the plastic found inside birds includes bags, bottle caps, synthetic fibers from clothing, and tiny rice-sized bits that have been broken down by the sun and waves. Tipa is an Israeli company that produce plastic alternative packaging. Nature works a company in Nebraska creates a plastic alternative made from corn. Biome Bioplastics is one of the UK’s leading developers of natural plastics. We are demanding change! Big companies, its time to get on board and ditch the plastic!
Support the Environmental Credit Scoring System!
A groundbreaking initiative sponsored by the Environmental Credit Score FoundationThere has been much debate on how to best preserve our natural resources while still advancing our nations as economic powerhouses. This discourse has often been fraught with misconceptions and polarized viewpoints. Yet the reality is that we only have one earth, and if we don’t take care of her gifts, mankind will eventually be left helpless. Due to the pressures of overconsumption, population growth, and our increased dependency on technology, the biophysical environment is being severely compromised – in some cases permanently. We’ve come to the point where environmental protection is the responsibility of all of us – individuals, corporations, organizations, and government entities. But how to get everyone on board has been the critical question! We recently launched a new nonprofit organization, Environmental Credit Score Foundation, based in Lewes, Delaware, U.S. Our main mission is to establish an environmental protection rating system (Environmental credit Scoring System) using a patent-pending system that assigns a numerical score indicating a company or individual's ‘environmental creditworthiness’ according to their actions and efforts in regard to environmental activities. We envision that there will soon be a nationally recognized and accepted environmental credit score that is able to reflect the environmental footprint of any individual, business, organization or entity and can be used like the community service by universities in making admission, scholarship and award decisions. In a larger sense, it could be a factor in hiring decisions, landlord-tenant decisions, and institutional priorities to name a few... We anticipate that businesses, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies will see the far-reaching implications of our project and will support its development and implementation because, once our environmental credit score is in place, there will be an increased interest in finding ways to utilize it and the returns will be impressive. Consumers will begin purchasing environmentally friendly products/services and participating in other environmental protection activities that contribute to the health of the environment to improve their scores. At the same time, they will have a direct impact on the business plans of companies who, as a result, will begin to respond to their preferences and will offer only environmentally sensitive products and services. This creates a cycle whereby individuals, businesses, and other entities to work together to protect the environment while also serving their self-interests. When a company registers with our organization as a partner, it becomes publicly accessible to users who would like to improve their environmental credit scores. By participating in environmental protection activities and purchasing environmentally friendly products or services from any of our partners, the user’s transaction details will be deposited into our system through the business partner's account to calculate an updated environmental credit score. This will result in an increased consumer demand for environmentally-friendly products and services, and companies will respond to the demand in order to remain competitive. How did this all come about? The organization's founder was conceived of the idea on hot summer’s day while he was quenching his thirst from a plastic bottle of water. He passed a garbage container and noticed several empty water bottles littered on the grass beside the garbage container. He picked them up and put them, along with his empty bottle, into the garbage. There were three guys standing on the other side of the building watching him. One of them had finished drinking his water and tossed the empty bottle at founder's feet. His anger flared, and he said to him, ‘Man, you were watching me collecting the bottles. Why did you throw your empty bottle in front of me rather than in the garbage container?’ The guy responded belligerently, ‘It is not your business Man.’ When the founder left, He began to think that there has to be a way to make environmental protection everyone’s business. Later, He filed a patent application related to ‘methods and systems for environmental credit scoring,’ which then led to the development of an environmental credit score, designed to represent the environmental creditworthiness of an individual, business, or any other entity. A high environmental credit score indicates better environmental creditworthiness. By signing this petition, you will demonstrate that you recognize what is at stake and what are the likely returns. Your commitment will be a decisive factor in activating a seismic shift in a global commitment to the safety of our environment! All stakeholders – from all sectors of society will begin to realize that they can advance their agendas while also taking responsibility for the health of our planet. We are confident that this project will inspire a global movement toward a time when we will be working together across all boundaries to preserve our resources. Please sign today so that tomorrow we will all live in a world where the health of our planet serves the interests of all!
Plastic bottle deposit scheme in the UK to encourage recycling
Many countries have a bottle deposit scheme. This means you pay a small deposit for the bottle packaging at the shop and, if you return the bottle later, you can get that deposit money back again. It works a little bit like the 5 pence charge on plastic bags, except, in this case - you can get the money back if you recycle! I experienced this when I lived in Germany and it works for a number of reasons: 1. It encourages recycling. In 2017, of the 38 countries that have this scheme, return rates were as high as 95%. (See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxeWGVsm818) 2. It's great when you get a little money back! 3. Homeless people and anyone strapped for cash help out. Though I hate to think people are using this as their main source of income, it does work towards solving the environmental issue. People would actually come up to you and offer to recycle the bottle for you. 4. Supermarkets get customers coming back to their stores because often the bottle deposit machine is placed inside their stores. 5. It stops plastic bottles entering our oceans which is better for marine life and also for your beach holidays. So why don't we have this in the UK? I'd like to know because, Greenpeace shares, 35 million bottles get discarded every day in the UK. Please sign this petition to create change and stop waste. It's easy to be sceptical about how much a petition can really change things but: - this petition will be shared with many politicians, courtesy of Change.org - this petition will also encourage the University of Nottingham to trial and showcase how a plastic bottle deposit scheme could work for the rest of the UK. - If you want to see some examples of petitions that were successul in creating change, go to: https://www.change.org/en-GB/victories I also encourage sign Greenpeace's petition on the same topic, to create double the impact: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/page/s/bottle-deposit After researching the pros and cons of this scheme in other countries, I have developed a list of solutions to potential problems the UK may face when developing this scheme. Hence, this petition: 1. Does not support the collection of the bottles by any means that is not sustainable. (I.e. they must, for example, be collected by cars powered by electric made by a renewable source, or, by cycling couriers) 2. Supports including an option to give to charity on the machine. Upon every return machine there is a button which you can press which gives the money to charity instead of to yourself. For this, you don't get a reciept. They have a system like this at a university in Scotland and this lessens the amount of receipts printed. (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Se-eWJcogQ&list=WL&index=96&t=1s) 3. Supports having a receipt-free machine. Rather than a receipt, this petition supports the money coming directly from the machine to stop wasting paper. 4. Supports a policy whereby those companies which are contributing highly to plastic waste, they must account for the cost of the deposit the customer would usually pay themselves. I.e. If company wants to sell their product in a completely non biodegradable plastic, they cannot demand that the consumer pay the deposit. Then, the customers simply get extra pocket money for recycling it. For every apparent problem, there must be a way of finding a solution! I'd love to hear other people's suggestions. :) Cheers for reading!
