Petition to Chick-Fil-A
Chick-Fil-A: No more styrofoam!
As someone who cares deeply about our environment, I'm writing to ask Chick-Fil-A to STOP using styrofoam cups. The particles created from disposal of these cups are being eaten by wildlife and endangering their lives. Polystyrene is also dangerous to humans, and its chemicals easily leech into our drinks. If we continue to destroy our ecosystem through the irresponsible use of nonbiodegradable materials, our planet will not be able to continue supporting us.Other food industry giants have stepped up their game and ditched styrofoam for more sustainable packaging. It's time you came on board. Millions of cups get thrown away without a second thought. Even still, you cannot recycle these cups into more cups, and so the production continues along with the destruction of our environment.Do the right thing, and switch over to paper. It's more eco-friendly, more sustainable, more recyclable, and overall the better choice for your company and the planet. Thank you for your time and your advocacy for us allSwitch to a more eco friendly paper cup
Petition to Eric Garcetti
No Plastic Packaging in Takeout!
We are just three kids in seventh grade wanting to make a difference. We noticed that when getting takeout from a restaurant that you get tons of plastic packaging. This is not right! The amount of plastic used for some food is tremendously wasteful. There are other more sustainable options like paper. Well, paper isn’t as cheap as the plastic, but it’s better for the environment. Not only will there be less waste, but you won’t use as much fossil fuels to produce the plastic. Less plastic in the landfills and less pollution in the air. Our hope is that we get enough signatures so we can show to the mayor of Los Angeles that people want change and that it’s not fair to the environment to produce all these wasteful plastic when there is a better option right in front of them. We hope to convince our mayor Eric Garcetti that this is not right and that you should not be allowed to use plastic for packaging in restaurants.

Cut down emissions in commodious factories!
When bigger companies start cutting emissions, it would just have a domino effect of the rest of the world. The biggest greenhouse gasses that are released are : cardon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are just some of the byproducts. Some effects of greenhouse gas emissions include : - Rising temperatures - Higher sea levels -Smog and acid rain Cutting back on energy consumption reduces the amount of electricity that power plants have to make, and in turn reduces the amount of fossil fuels that are being burned daily. Some every day things you and your family could do at home to reduce your carbon footprint could be : -Exchanging your incandescent light bulb for an efficient CFL (is the equivalent to take 1.3 MILLION cars off of the roads) -Biking more and driving less (it requires much less energy to produce a bike than it does to manufacture a car) -Conserve your water! ( When brushing your teeth, turn the water off and take shorter showers)
Petition to Suwanee River Water Management District
Stop Nestle from bottling water from Florida’s Ginnie Springs NOW!
Nestle Waters North America is requesting a new permit to draw water from Ginnie Springs in Gilchrist County, Florida. The permit would allow the company to withdraw as much as 1.152 million gallons of water a day from the springs, which flows into the Santa Fe River, for bottling. River advocates are concerned about the proposal. They say the Santa Fe River is losing water and that allowing that much water a day to be pumped out of the spring, which flows into the Santa Fe, is unwise. The potential impact on wetlands of the proposed withdrawal will most likely cause potential harm to threatened or endangered species. Besides the fact single use water bottles continue to create more environmental pollution, allowing Nestlé to obtain a permit will most likely reduce already low water levels. Let’s all show Suwannee River Water Management District that we care about our environment and are asking them to not allow Nestle any more permits that potentially hurt our water supply.

make your own toiletries
We are just three kids in seventh grade wanting to make a difference. Humans buy about 1,000,000 plastic bottles per minute. Our goal is to make people use fewer plastic bottles by making their own products. An average person buys about 13 plastic bottles a month. So if every person makes their own soap once a month it would reduce the number of plastic bottles by 8% per month. That's 4000000 less. Now we're not expecting all the world to do this but if we got a good amount of people we would make a difference. if your interested go to https://kg2505.wixsite.com/toiletries/how-to-make and by signing this petition you are committing to not buying plastic soap bottles.Our hope is that we get enough signatures so we can show to the mayor of Los Angeles that people want change and that it’s not fair to the environment to produce all these wasteful plastic when there is a better option right in front of them. We hope to convince our mayor Eric Garcetti that this is not right.
Petition to US Forest Service
Tell The US Forest Service To Stop The Smoke....Put The Fires Out!
US Forest Service Administrators are engaged in purposeful fire, smoke and heat growth practices. These dangerous pollution practices are not based on true science and harm us all, including our children, the very young, the elderly, those who are pregnant, respiratory patients, ranch animals, pets, our cherished wildlife, local and regional recreation, visitors and commerce. They degrade the water quality and clarity of our streams, rivers and lakes. Largely unknown to the public and press the US Forest Service has been quietly "growing" fires, smoke and heat with tactics called "Box and Burn", "Minimal Impact Suppression Tactics", and since 1978, engaging in what is known as "Appropriate Suppression Response" (Code for growing fires). As we witnessed last summer, this purposeful US Forest Service assault on our clean air systematically clouded major US Western Cities with toxic smoke plumes reaching from the Western US, to as far east as New York. Tell US Forest Service Administrators to STOP GENERATING TOXIC SMOKE....Stop Growing Fires....PUT THE FIRES OUT!
Petition to Donald J. Trump
Stop Burning the Rainforest
The rainforest is home to over thousands of animals. It has significantly decreased in size over the past few years for a number of reasons. Whether it’s from burning trees for more space, for slaughter houses for cattle, illegal logging, uncontrolled fires, or other practices, numerous ecosystems are being destroyed. One common reason the rainforest is burned is because they are making room for palm trees for palm oil. This palm oil is used in a multitude of products such as peanut butter or cereal, but it can even be put into our hair products.Why is this a problem?This is a problem because the controlled burns that company’s do to effectively remove unwanted trees and debris are actually destroying these animals homes. In this video, https://youtu.be/ihPfB30YT_c , you can see an orangutans home being taken down by a bulldozer. You can also see the ground badly burned most likely by a controlled fire. These animals are one of the most endangered animals and big name companies are tearing their homes down. The estimate of how many orangutans are left goes between 50,000-65,000. But according to, Orangutan Conservancy, “we do know with certainty that 2,000 to 3,000 orangutans are killed every year.” If we continue these practices then the orangutans will go extinct along with thousands of other animals who have tried to make their homes in the rainforest. They are experiencing the apocalypse and we have to do something to help them. What can I do?1. Sign this petition2. Boycott the distribution and sales of palm oil in hair products 3. Try to cut down on the amount of palm oil in your house weather it’s cereal or peanut butter etc.4. Get more educated on the cause and spread the awareness 5. Partake in a march on this topic 6. EAT LESS MEAT. The reason some of these burnings go on is because they are building cattle slaughter houses. Cutting down on meat cuts down on the burnings.Why is this important and why should I care?This is important because without the rainforest the oxygen cleanliness will decrease infinitely as the rainforest supplies us with most of our oxygen. And without it thousands of endangered animals will go extinct because of us. You should care because the animals behave the same worth as a human would. The animals where here first and we ruined their ecosystems. Sign now to petition against the destruction and burnings of the rainforest.
Petition to Shakopee High School Administrative Board
Shakopee High School Petition to Eliminate Plastic Utensils in Cafeteria
Plastic utensils create a massive amount of unnecessary waste, contributing to our growing global climate change issue. Shakopee High School uses approximately 2,000 individual plastic utensils per day, which multiplied by the 171 student contact school days would produce an estimated total of 342,000 utensils or 2,052 pounds of plastic thrown away annually from this one product alone in our school. Replacing plastic utensils with metal or biodegradable alternatives would be a great first step in reducing the waste production of SHS.
