As a 15-year-old attending Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas I’ve not had much experience in life, but what I can say is that in this world we only have one shot left to make things right. Currently there are many other issues in this world, including war, poverty, and starvation. However, by the time we finally overcome those as a civilization we will have destroyed our oceans and lakes due to plastic pollution. Sea turtles, fish, algae, aquatic mammals, and sea birds are some of the organisms threatened. Without our oceans, we will lose 50%-85% of our oxygen due to plankton/diatom die off. So in order to stop this process, I need your help by signing this petition to outlaw plastic bags or straws in coastal city’s. As a solution to the alternative disposable bags and straws, people will use either reusable or compostable bags and straws. Once this petition is completed I will personally send letters to the current president of the United States until something is done about this current crisis. I know it is a lot but I beg of you guys to reach 2 million signatures. Please and thank you!
