Kasandra Martinez started this petition to Philippine Government and

Most of us think that after we throw our plastic trash in a garbage can, it would just automatically go away. Plastic waste is considered inevitable in today's generation and its consumption results in evident negative changes in our world. It is the material that are put into recycled bins and end up being sent to landfill, burned or stockpiled. 

The term, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" isn't just a random phrase. Reducing our consumption of waste and reusing materials contribute into our environment much more than telling ourselves, "Plastic is recyclable."  Living in a country where wet markets and local farms are available is convenient. But, poverty still stands in making plastic pollution worst. With this petition, I intend to request the government to ban the use of plastic and provide alternatives which the public can use and apply in their daily life.

As a student, I learn about the world and the environment i live in every single day. But I also encounter the facts that plastic pollution is also affecting not only us, humans but also animals. I fear that if we do not take action today, we will live in a world where there are more plastics than animals to see and food to eat in the future.
