Reject & Stop Single Use Gallon Drinking Water Products! For the Future of the Earth.

 

Dear friends, the use of gallon packaging for daily drinking water has now become a basic need for all households and offices.
 
Almost all levels of society, especially those who live in urban areas, use drinking waterin gallon packaging in their daily lives.
 
Previously, all gallons of drinking water used, are reusable or can be reused. That is why every time we buy drinking water in gallons, we only buy the water, by exchanging the empty gallons we have at the store.
 
With just such a simple method, which has been done for decades, we can take one simple step to preserve the environment, be friendly to the environment, and of course reduce plastic waste.
 
But now, a new gallon drinking water product was launched. But this product is not allign with our today needs and current environment condition.

Why? Because now, supposedly, we should prioritize and pay attention to the environment, but this is far from it.
 
Why? Because the products they made are drinking water with disposable/single use gallons packaging. It means, consumer cannot exchange their empty gallons back to the store, also to the manufacturer and the gallons can only used one time.
 
If we see from the economic practicality, just imagine, every time a gallon of drinking water runs out, people must always buy a new gallon.
 
Now the question is, if it goes on and on, how many single used gallons will accumulated at our home, in our trash bin, or in our landfill?
 
Okay, we can make it into something, like plant pots. But how many pots of plants from single used gallons do we need, while we continue to drink, continue to buy drinking water, and continue to create new waste from the single used gallons of drinking water.
 
Therefore, in the midst of the 'war' against plastic waste, which incidentally has a 'destructive' impact on environmental sustainability. Of course its becomes a big question mark.
 
It's already very often explained the effects arising from plastic waste.
 
Starting from the decline of the quality of soil and ground water, to the threatened survival of various animals both that have habitat on land and in the water.
 
This also has a direct impact on us. Microplastic contained in fish and shellfish consumed, has the potential to interfere with human health.
 
Return to disposable/single use gallons packaging. As an illustration, there are currently around 50 million reusable gallon packs on the market. Where the packaging in a year can be refilled again until 25 times. Imagine the number of such packaging if you use disposable/single use gallon packaging in one year?
 
Yes 1,250,000,000 packaging will be wasted as trash!
 
Just an illustration, if the average gallon has a diameter of 27 cm, just multiply it by 1,250,000,000. If we lined  it up, it will spend 337,500 km in distance. Even though our earth only has a circumference of 40,070 km.
 
If we dispose the gallon in water, there will be single use gallon rubbish that covers the size of Lake Toba every year.
 
Imagine friends, how horrible will be our beautiful environment covered with disposable/single use gallons packaging?
 
Therefore, for the sake of a better environment, let's support this petition so that producers of bottled drinking water immediately stop the use of disposable/ single use gallons.
 
For the government, tighten regulations on the use of plastics and ban the usage of disposable/single use gallon packaging.
 
All for our environment, for our nature, and for the health of the life in it.
 
Reject & Stop the Use of disposable/single use gallon packaging.
