The Last Straw: Ban plastic straws from London businesses

Calling all lawyers: sue the Plastics Manufacturers like big tobacco! They need to make biological products for consumers, distributors, and grocery chains; they need to fund & coordinate standardized international recycling to be separated by advanced robotics; they need to barcode ALL plastics; they need to make 100% recycling a viable choice (which it isn't currently) prompted by a tax to consumers on ALL plastics (my co-workers only recycle for profit). Ban non-recyclables. And Plastics Manufacturers need to pay for the clean-up of the oceans. If you test your blood and various organ tissues (such as liver,kidneys, pancreas, brain), you will find not only microplastic, but stored inside you and your family's tissues are numerous toxic chemicals and flame retardants that attaches to plastic, such as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), perfluorinated compounds (PFC), plychlorinated biphenyl (PCB), and many more. These are endocrine disruptors. It's in the water, seafood, animals, rain, soil, honey, sugar, salt, fish oil, and God help us--in our bodies and the air. How do get out of this "human global crisis?" Start by suing Plastics Manufacturers for these immediate changes. If you work for a corporation, ask yourself, could we use paper, metals, or glass instead? Could we tax ALL plastics prompting recycling back to the manufacturers? Yes, of course, people will recycle for a return of their money!
