Our oceans are full of plastic and trash. I believe us as a community need to change that. Our future, our children, and our whole ecosystem is at stake. And for what? Because your to lazy to throw away your garbage? The smallest things have the biggest impacts on our oceans.
Millions of plastic bottles, bags, and disposable masks are throwing in our lakes, rivers, streams, creeks, and oceans. Might not seem like a big deal until you see all the animals that are effected by this, not only are they chocked, strangled, and disturbed by this plastic. It also destroys there home.
Its not just marine animals either, your garbage going into the water kills over 1 MILLION birds each year, not counting the 100 thousand marine animals that die each year from pollution.
This problem is only getting worse, people push it off as a joke, think it’s funny. Even something as small as a piece of gum can choke and kill a small animal or end up in our oceans killing animals and ruining their environment, there home.
According to https www.livescience.com over 1.3 million gallons of oil ends up on our oceans each year. (that’s 1.3 milk jugs filled with oil) That’s not counting the endless oil spills that occur each year adding thousands of gallons into our oceans killing millions of marine animals each and every year.
Please sign this petition and help me save our oceans, and stop this abomination of a problem called pollution. ~Ryder Vrchota
