Leah Dakers started this petition to Greenpeace USA

Year after year, our collective consumption of plastic products from mail packages, food & beverage purchases, cleaners (including hygiene and sanitary products) and ultimately everything we consider a necessity has been rapidly killing the earth and putting the life expectancy of the human race at risk. According to statistics from Earth Day Network 2018, "8.3 Billion Metric Tons (9.1 Billion US Tons) of Plastic has been produced since plastic was introduced in the 1950's. The amount of plastic produced in a year is roughly the same as the entire weight of humanity". Just because we cant see our mess doesn't mean that it isn't there. Some of the plastic produced from the beginning of its invention still exists today, so if we continue to use it at rate that we are now, the earths mass will go from soil and water to a complete plastic land fill.

It is only right that we consider the 'feelings' of the land that NAURALLY provides nutritional food (flora and fauna), oxygen and water for the sustenance of our survival and subsequently our happiness. As a result of every countries aim for continued industrialization and development (at the cheapest cost achievable) we continue to mass produce products contained by plastic, but it is time to end it. As a society, we must realize the injustice we have contributed to and take initiative to alter our toxic way of life. Understandably, it is hard for everyone to stop plastic consumption all in a day, but finding ways in which we can first REDUCE will start the change. Finding safe and creative alternatives to replace the enemy will also contribute to change.  The aim of this petition is to get you to REDUCE, REUSE and REPLENISH. Show some gratitude to Mother Earth by signing this petition
