Lalli Castaneda started this petition to Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot

Hi, my name is Lalli and I'm an ordinary teenager. I know you may be thinking, "What does it have to do with this petition?" What matters is there are millions of teenagers like me who's future will be sacrificed for another dollar in Major fossil fuel companies. According to scientists, if we continue to fail on cutting down fossil fuels by 2030, an irreversible chain reaction will occur. This chain reaction will lead to catastrophic natural events and will eventually wipe out the human race as we know it. There's hope though and all it takes is one click off a button.

By spreading awareness on social media and by signing petitions like these we can begin to ban/charge these plastics that are leading to our own death. Plastic and single-use plastic relates to Climate change and Global warming through many reasons. Reasons such as the factories that produce these plastic materials use fossil fuels to power the production. Therefore, if we at least cut off 1% of the production of plastic by banning/charging for certain plastics, then the factory will produce less of these materials. Lastly, Plastic is made with oil which uses more energy as oil is extracted. To finish off,  all I ask as a normal teenager who might not have a future because of the way our environment is going, is to please sign this! Be a hero to your children and to humanity. Thank you!
