If we don’t make a change now it will be too late! I want the major stores to use paper bags instead of plastic or a compostable plastic bags.

Calling all lawyers: sue the Plastics Manufacturers like big tobacco! 1) They need to fund & coordinate STANDARDIZED INTERNATIONAL RECYLING to be separated by advanced robotics (& standardized curbside pick-up in developed countries); 2) They need to barcode 100% of ALL plastics world-wide; 3) They need to make 100% recycling a viable choice (which it isn't currently) prompted by a strict tax to consumers on ALL plastics (to go to a global trust fund); 4) Ban plastics that are inferior non-recyclables & switch to bioplastics (i.e. all packaging, food packaging, & produce bags); 5) Plastics Manufacturers need to be 100% capable of environmentally repurposing their recycled materials (so not burning or burying, nor producing too much); 6) They need to make biological products for consumers, distributors, and grocery chains at lower prices than synthetics--or move aside and go bankrupt allowing for better companies to innovate; 7) And, most important, Plastics Manufacturers need to pay for the clean-up of the oceans [open source public volunteers to sign-up online for community service hours as a world-wide effort. There are 7 billion of us and I would help give 7 hours. Just think what 7 billion people could do in 7 hours for “World Clean-Up Day.” But it should be ongoing 365 days per year.]. Know that if you test your blood and various organ tissues (such as liver, kidneys, pancreas, brain), you will find not only microplastic, but stored inside you and your family's tissues are numerous toxic chemicals and flame retardants that attaches to plastic, such as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), perfluorinated compounds (PFC), plychlorinated biphenyl (PCB), BPA and many more. These are endocrine disruptors. It's in the filtered water, seafood, animals, dairy, salt, and fish oil. But microplastics are also in the rain, soil (even organic), honey, sugar, breast milk, the air, the Antarctic, and accumulating within our body organs. How do we get out of this "human global crisis?" Start by suing Plastics Manufacturers for these immediate changes internationally. If you work for a corporation, ask yourself, could we use paper, metals, or glass instead--or newly invented biological plastics (not petroleum synthetics)? Could we globally tax 100% of ALL synthetic plastics prompting 100% recycling back to the manufacturers? Yes, of course, people will only recycle for a return of their money! (Visit https://star-board.blue/global-plastics-matrix/ for a view of world-wide efforts.) The entire human race weighs 300 million tons. 300+ million tons of plastics are produced annually, and 90% is not being recycled by the industry. This nightmare began in the late 1950’s. It's still here and everywhere microscopically. Please push for these changes. Please contact your state senators, state representatives, and state governor (or contact all 5,500 across the U.S. I am writing them all. You can too.). Let this be the largest international alliance and litigation in the world’s history! Let this be our legacy!

Plastic should be considered primitive and archaic. There are better solutions to our needs.
