Marco Law started this petition to US Government

It goes without saying that plastics are harmful to our environment. The UN claims that 90 per cent of all plastic produced ends up being trash. Worst still, many of them take decades, if not centuries to decompose in a natural habitat, and cannot be combusted due to toxic gases as a result. This is exactly why we see stories of ocean animals dying from consuming tonnes o plastic waste. This has to stop.

As the biggest economy in the world, it is appalling that the US has not fully banned the use of plastic bags and other plastic products, such as takeaway food containers. Whilst such bans are imposed in some local communities, this is not enough for reversing the plastic emergency that we face.Multiple states even have state-wide preemptive bans of local administrations banning plastic. This is unaccptable.

With this in mind, I am calling on all of the global community to support this petition to the US government, asking for action in ALL of the US to immediately salvage Earth from the crisis it is facing. The problem of plastic knows no bounds, so anyone across the globe should all show support for this. We also set no specific scope and timeline, as long as plastic is banned in as many places as soon as possible.

STOP PLASTIC!
