The oceans of planet Earth as we know them today are a suffering mass of water full of life crying out for our help.
Mankind invented a material in which would be a "huge success" however that has not been the point, instead mankind invented plastic as a material that would last forever but for many items only be used once and then would go on to sit on the surface of the planet for the rest of time as we know it today.
Whilst many are still unaware of the horrifically damaging scenes in which the planet is falling victim to it is now becoming more and more of a daily news headline...but not good headlines...
Under 50% of plastic products are NOT recycled correctly, over a billion plastic items end up in our ocean every single year, straws, bottles, bags, ear buds, drinking cups and the list goes on...
We as a population are destroying life in the oceans, whales are swallowing plastic products, in 2017 we saw a whale die from eating 30+ bags and sheets which in a horror like scene the plastic tangled itself around the whales organs...
And in 2018 just a few weeks ago in asia we saw an innocent pilot whale die a slow and painful death that took 5 days and why? Because it had swallowed OVER 80 PLASTIC BAGS!
We as a living thing, as a population and as living things with a heart and a mind and a voice are slowly torturing all life in the oceans and some dont even know about it!?
This plastic is becoming a deadly toy to dolphins and seals, food for whales, turtles and birds...nearly all birds out at sea would have had an intake of plastic without any doubt, the animals dont see the difference between food and plastic.
it is about time that we opened our eyes!
We can have ships sailing the ocean 365 days a year, planes flying 30,000 feet in the air, submarines...all this technology...we can even have 3D printers BUT....but....we can not sustain our oceans health and cleanliness?
I am not just making this petition in a rant or in anger...
I am making this petition to get the peoples voices heard that feel the heartache, the pain and the horror that we are putting our oceans in, I am calling on world leaders and the European Union to stand up, Put their foot down and BAN PLASTIC!.
In the UK we have see a tremendous effect since National television sensation Sir David Attenborough presented Blue Planet 2, costa, starbucks and other coffee chains are ditching single use plastic, supermarkets are ditching plastic bags, iceland are ditching plastic packaging...
UK prime minister has even announced a full ban on plastic straws, drink stirrers and ear buds which are some of the most common items found in the ocean.
I am not sitting here typing away for the sake of it..
I am standing up on my feet, shouting and begging for people to take action, We can not accept this any more!
We are polluting our planet to the extreme, we are killing millions of lifeforms and dont even thing twice, plastic ends up in our food chain meaning we are even eating plastic micros....
I can not accept the way our planet looks at this anymore, I have seen too many negative stories about Plastic
IT IS TIME TO SAVE THE OCEANS, TIME TO BAN PLASTIC AND STAND UP FOR THE OCEAN
THERE IS NO PLANET B!
