Global warming has become a very serious topic lately, and it’s something that must be stopped ASAP! It all starts with saving our wild life, and their homes. We need to develop a system that won’t put our animals at risk anymore. Natural disasters are increasing every year and so is animal extinction.

56billion land animals are killed per year and 1million sea animals are killed every year due to plastic debris. Ingesting large pieces of plastic can starve an animal when the plastic seals their gastrointestinal tract. In most cases sea turtles often mistake plastic bags as jelly fish, at times they get plastic straws stuck in their nostrils. Some animals are not able to digest plastic properly and for the ones that do, they sometimes have problems trying to poop it out due to the fact that the piece of plastic is bigger than the animals anus. Sea animals are not the only ones at risk! Birds often get caught up in plastic bags and prevents them from flying which can cause them to starve. At times other land mammals confuse plastic bags for food and causes digestive issues. 

The process of making plastic products also causes air pollution, releasing toxic gases that spread into the atmosphere. To manufacture one single plastic bag materials like benzene and vinyl hydrochloride are needed. These materials are toxic gases that once they are released in the air can cause cancer in humans and also pollutes our soils where most plants are eaten by our land animals. 

In conclusion, I am suggesting that big chains and small local stores and restaurants start selling less plastic supplies and more recycled paper & metal products. Restaurants & stores should ban plastic straws everywhere and stop providing plastic bags. It may not sound like much but something so little like this can make a huge change. People should do their part In their everyday life, whether it is as little as buying metal/paper straws or just signing this petition. Educate yourself and see what little everyday tasks could affect our already endangered ecosystems. Im asking for you to please take a second to picture a world without our animals, it wouldn’t be as amazing as it is today. Take a stand, if California was able to banned plastic straws imagine how much more we can do for our animals and over all earth!
