Online Shopping Packaging - Say Big No to Plastic!

This petition had 28,609 supporters

India had banned all forms of disposable plastic in its capital but this poison has again found its way back and this time from digital medium - Online Shopping Packaging. All online shopping portals are ruthlessly using plastic in the packaging of goods, this practice should be banned immediately.  

An astonishing 8.8 million tons of plastic makes its way into our oceans every year. The biggest problem with plastic waste is that it never breaks down, it just breaks into smaller and smaller pieces and leaches chemicals into the water. Approximately 100,000 marine creatures die every year by getting entangled in them or by mistakenly eating it. 

On burning, it emits poisonous gases which in turn is polluting our environment to the extent that even toddlers are facing asthma issues. It's high time! we should WAKE UP and say big no to Plastic!  

Now in fact because of our casual attitude toward this, very soon a nation will be underwater #Global Warming. Here is the link
