Recycling bins for Splash/Spray

Troop 52048 started this petition to Nocatee David Ray

         Girl scout troop 52048 is looking to have recycling bins placed in Ponte Vedra Florida Nocatee's Splash. We feel this is important because things that can be recycled are being thrown away. Trash then gets washed away into the ocean and hurts or kills animals and plants. Many people visit Splash and order food or throw away snack bags and broken flip flops. All of that can be washed away. By the time it all dissolves, there will be no earth.

          Our goal is 2000 signatures. Please help us reach our goal so we can help the environment and save millions of living things. Just one small change in earth can do a whole lot. Our girl scouts are doing this not only to get our bronze award, but to help in general. Our girl scouts will earn their bronze award if they complete this mission to get recycling bins onto splash.

               The things that you throw away are buried in the ground. They are buried in something known as a 'landfill'. These are very deep holes which hold A LOT of trash. The problem is, there are only a few locations left in most western countries which actually have space to hold all of the waste people are generating. Because of that, it gets washed away into the natural habitats that both other animals, and we need. But when you recycle, all the mixed recycling is sorted and separated into different types of materials by hand or machine (or both) before being sent to manufacturers who make it into new products. Once collected and sorted, recycled materials become valuable commodities in the worldwide market. So we can put it to good use again! Imagine all that material that can be used again being thrown away so it can destroy the Earth. 

           One little thing can change the world. That's why we need you to sign this petition to help in making a change. Thank you.
