Lowering the usage of plastic in our environment.

This petition had 7 supporters

Did you know about 1 million plastic bags are used every minute worldwide and more than 250,000kgs of plastic is littered in New Zealand daily? Also approximately 3.68kgs of plastic is wasted each day per person, this is significantly higher than most other nations. 

People in New Zealand are using plastic way too much in their everyday lives and this is leading to an increasing level of pollution in our environment, which is mainly made up of plastic bags and bottles. By lowering the usage of plastic in our everyday lives we can clean up our environment and also save our marine species from choking and dying on all our plastic that is dumped in our oceans. 

We can make a huge difference to the level of pollution in our environment by using plastic alternatives, this would lower the usage of plastic in our everyday lives.

Nick Smith is pro for helping to reduce plastic, so he is launching a bill to put a small charge of 15 cents on a single plastic bag. This would significantly contribute to lowering the overall usage of plastic in our oceans. 

So please I implore you to a change to your environment questioning whether you really do need to accept that plastic bag offered to you at the till next time?
