Seth Reaume started this petition to United Nations

The manufacturing of plastic has brought many conveniences to our modern way of life. Unfortunately the abundance of plastics has lead to massive pollution of our planet. Our methods for waste management are incapable of handling the amount of plastic waste that we currently produce. 

This is a problem for everyone. Plastics are aiding in the destruction of our ecosystems and the reduction in wildlife populations. It has already begun to have it's toll on humans as well. The toxic emissions that happen to be a byproduct of plastic production are in the lungs of everyone who inhabits this planet. Microplastics are found in quantity just about anywhere in our oceans. Help put an end to this.

It is my belief that if we can create financial penalties for the production of plastic, we will significantly reduce the amount of manufacturing that takes place. This is just the beginning but a huge step in the right direction. It needs to be implemented on a global scale if we stand any chance. We still need certain plastic products in our world but we can significantly reduce the amount if we make it financially less appealing for a company to utilize plastic in their products.

By signing this petition, we are calling on the United Nations to impose a global law on the manufacturing of all plastic products. The law will require all plastic manufacturing to be penalized with a fee. The fee will have to be large enough to separate emergency and essential uses of plastics from everyday consumption purposes.

Thank you!
