Come on... Big money and legislators are all standing up for petroleum companies. We see what this IS doing. Millions of bags, prolluting in even the smallest community. Don't get me started on creating plastic materials 1 through 7, and only being able to recycle two or three of those materials.
It's time for oil and gas infrastructure to be rid with. Stop protecting old money! Protect us, hear us and TAKE CARE OF US.
This doesn't matter where we live-- plastic plastic is EVERYWHERE.
It's broke, IT'S TIME TO FIX IT.
ZERO WASTE....
For the love of all Holy,
Please.
Our children deserve the same future that we had.
Generation Y is showing you, our parents, the right way--with innovative, life-changing ideas.
We need to ban plastic, all around.
Stop putting blame on consumers... The plastic bag corporation has to go, AT LEAST, until it's wiped out completely-- charge consumers 5 cents a bag. So they remember, to bring in their cloth, reuseable bag for shopping.
The plastic breaks down in the water. The fish eat the plastic. We eat those fish. We have ingested plastic. The larger animals, engulf the plasti, killing them-- tipping the ecosystem scales.
THIS IS NOT DEATH BY NATURE CAUSES-- this is premeditated murder, on every single one of us living beings on this Earth.
Action needs to be taken and we have grown adults not wavering due to their own financial gain-- how do you even go to sleep at night KNOWING that our Earth is choking on plastic?
It doesn't matter who's fault it is-- it matters what we do NOW.
Together. Move forward.
Biodegradable. Eco friendly plastic.

A plea to ALL who read this: PLEASE…EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US MUST ADD OUR VOICES to the collective demand for an immediate end to this horrifying, unconscionable animal cruelty. It is OUR inaction that will allow it to continue! Please…do everything that you can to: spread awareness of this activity; to demand rapid rescue, protection, and justice for these suffering animals; and to advocate for the future welfare of these most vulnerable fellow animals. Together, we have the power to make this happen, but this needs YOU. Please, sign this petition, and/ or any others that you can find!

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm guilty of using disposable shopping bags. If they were banned, I'd have to smarten up. Let's do it.

It doesn't cost anything to bring your own bags to the store. Easy to do once you get in the habit. Let's all do it!
