Title: "Petition to Global Implementation of Eco-Friendly Substitute for Plastics" 

PLASTIC POLLUTION is one of modern day biggest enviromental issues. It is even threatening to various life forms living on land and water, for instance when plastic is consumed by animals it leads to their death.

It is relevant that plastic pollution is damaging our enviroment rapidly. Waste plastic material is hard to dispose for it's a nonbiodegradable material. The increasing use of plastic bags, utensils and furniture, the amount of plastic waste has also gone up and so has the plastic pollution. 

It's about time we must take this problem seriously and work towards annihilating it. There's a way to fix this, because more eco-friendly alternatives to plastics are out there. More and more inventions are coming up yo save our Mother Earth. There are enviromental friendly alternatives that we can use to at least lessen its negative impact.

Philosophical View

As we all know plastics play a huge role in our society, as we, humans are the one who is responsible to the current dilemma we are now facing which is the plastic pollution. We must take action to this kind of problems which we're all responsible to this kind of problem. As for scientific studies, point to the increasing negative impact of human activities on the condition of our planet. 

Solution 

I made this kind of petition to promote awareness and ideas that it is not to late to save the Earth. There are inventions that are saving the Earth, most of them are not yet globally distributed and not all of us are aware of these holy grail inventions. The first one is the Ooho Capsule or the Edible Water Bottle made from seaweed, these are biodegradable pods that can be filled with water or other beverages. The second one is, the "fake" plastic Sharon Bark invented consists of 100% eco-friendly materials that easily dissolve in water and become part of the nature. You can even drink its water solution. The third one is, plastic free shampoo pods that come in soluble firm and also the shampoo bar. The fourth one is, the eco-friendly utensils made by Sarah Munir from Bakery's, you can eat the utensils and prevent waste at its source. The fifth one is, the toothpaste pill which are in sustainable package by Lindsay McCormick. The sixth one is, the Biodegradable bags made by Kevin Kumala which can dissolves in water. And lastly is the latest invention made by our fellow Filipino, a  Bioplastic out Of Mango And Seaweed made by Denxybel Montinola. These are some of the inventions made by our fellow citizens that has a potential but still out of reach, these clearly can make a difference if these products are distributed throughout the globe, if these products are implemented and accept by each countries throughout the globe we can actually 100% save the Earth. But sadly, these inventions are out of our hand and still limited. That's why I made this petition, to help people realize that we still have time and hoping these can spread internationally for us, if all of us 7 billion using these products, together we are one saving the Earth. Together we can make a difference. 

Closing Statement: 

"Plastics, in all forms– straws, bottles, packaging, bags and etc... are all choking our planet... We must find ways to reduce and eventually eliminate single-use plastic products."  -Governor Jerry Brown 

It's about time to completely avoid the use of plastics and save our enviroment from pollution. Share to your friends and family about the harmful effects of plastics, encourage others to switch to enviromental friendly products and absolutely say "NO" to plastics. Hoping my petition one day will spread internationally and finally takes action to it. That one day, we all can use these kind of products that is life-changing and Earth-saving. It takes something to change to make a big change.
