0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Earth day 2018.... i was working and decided to use my 30 minute meal break to step outside in the sunhine and clean up garbage in the shrubs surrounding the parking lot.  Right away i was discouraged when i grabbed a large single use plastic garbage bag....ugh.....and also by knowing i would be filling it with more single use plastic. i spent about 40 minutes outside cleaning around the shrubs and filled my bag only managing to cover a stretch of shrubs no more than 10 feet long. We humans are addicted to plastic everything!!!

Single use plastic is polluting our waters and is harming us...our environment....our animals and marine life. The chemical additives during plastic production could have potentially harmful effects that could prove to be carcinogenic.

Plastic bags don’t biodegrade, they photodegrade – breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits.  Plastic bags are among the 12 items of debris most often found in coastal cleanups.

Plastic bags are completely unnecessary!!

please!!! please!!!! BYOB KINGSTON!!
