Using plastics bottle, wrapping, bags, straws and all other different plastics that isn’t biodegradable are killing our marine animals, not recycling your plastic litter is having a massive negative effect on our sea life and the environment. “A plastic bottle can last for 450 years in the marine environment, slowly fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces which eventually end up microscopic but never truly go away.” “Over 80% of marine pollution comes from land-based activities.” This shows that most of the litter that kills these marine animals comes from humans. We need to RECYCLE more and stop using so much plastics. By signing this petition, you are agreeing to replacing plastic straws with paper straws, paper straws are eco-friendlier.
