Stop the sale of living toys.

Living creatures such as baby turtles and fish are being imprisoned in a plastic bubble and sold as key rings.
The concept of a living creature being industrialised in this way is abhorrent to anyone with a love of nature, and an appreciation of what is good in the world.
It also crosses a line in terms of a sense of "The Rights of Mother Nature".
Not only is this a rape of nature, it also threatens to set a precedent of new levels of environmental abuse and disregard.
In addition to this, (and probably more important on a Spiritual and Conciousness level), through their novelty appeal to curious children, the next Chinese generation is learning new ways to disrespect and exploit the natural environment that sustains us all.
This cannot be good for China, and in a global community cannot be good for any of us.
