Catalysts for Reconstruction of the Environment started this petition to Cebu City's Downtown Area

The people who are affected in the proliferation of plastics in these current days are the ones who live in metropolitan areas, specifically Cebu City Downtown Area. Since plastics are currently increasing in number here in Cebu City, many people suffer from polluted surroundings and diseases, for plastics undermine the area's sheer sanitation.  Yes, plastics truly offer us convenience and comfort, and other societal benefits. But, it also doubled the effects that are mostly felt by the people in the affected area. Many of the people's lives are currently in peril brought about by the scattering of bacteria and leads to unbearable diseases. 

3 WAYS THAT PLASTICS HARM OUR ENVIRONMENT, ANIMALS, AND OTHER CREATURES

  • Plastics became the most common sight

Not just in Cebu, but across the Globe. As a result, it clogs the water drainage system in most highly developed cities and where establishments can be most found. As a result, wherever your eyes lay, plastics enveloped every inch of the city. When heavy rain poured down on cities especially in Colon, flash floods immediately arises, because water drainage can no longer drain the water due to blockage of massive and countless plastics.

  • Plastics kill not just only humans

In some certain parts in our country, corpses of birds found laid down with plastics in their belly portion remained. Plastics play a role in rising rates of species extinctions. Eating plastics surely leads to blockage of intestine and malnutrition, for most plastics contains toxic chemicals, and leads to species' death. The plastics flowed from the city by runoffs to larger bodies of water causes marine lives to suffer with these unnatural materials. 

  • Plastics corrupts the nature's beauty

As we can see in Colon Street, there are many vendors around the corners selling to sustain their family's needs, so as to the plastics that are being used by these vendors, scattered everywhere and produces foul odors as you pass along. Yes, plastics seems to be very colorful but it can never be good contributor to our Mother Earth, so much innovations yet wanton destruction of our Mother Earth has been recklessly done.

HOW CAN WE LESSEN THE HARMFUL EFFECTS BROUGHT ABOUT BY PLASTICS?

We, the catalysts in recovering our environment's natural beauty, we want to have the "No Plastic Policy" except on Wednesdays and Saturdays be effectively implemented, why, because it'll surely lessen the numbers of plastics recklessly thrown everywhere by the people who lacks self-discipline and symposiums. The use of Paper Bags and Eco Bags in frequent ways can indeed, prevent any issues/problems that plastics can possibly bring in our society, like blocking the water drainage system that can lead to severe flash floods, contamination of bodies of water and foods, and diseases due to lack of proper sanitation and so forth.

We really care about reviving our environment's natural countenance, because it is only us that will suffer at the end from what we are doing with our Mother Earth, Life is a boomerang, what we give is what we get, so in taking care of the natural resources and using of plastics occasionally, Mother Earth will also give us kindness and grace and a vibrant surrounding.

For you as an integral part in making our world be back to what once it used to be, you must also have the complete sense of care and discipline in yourselves in not using plastics more often. Be not a hypocrite, because we all know that each of us contributed destruction in our dear Mother Earth by just simply throwing a piece of teared plastic, but I do believe that there is always room for change, and that we can make bigger changes altogether, one step at a time with God's guidance.
