Petition to McDonald's, Burger King, Burger King UK
Save the environment - Stop giving plastic toys with fast food kids meals
We are Ella and Caitlin aged 9 and 7, and we’ve been learning all about the environment at school and the problem of plastic. It made us very sad to see how plastic harms wildlife and pollutes the ocean, and we want to change this. That’s why we want Burger King and McDonald’s to think of the environment and stop giving plastic toys with their kids meals. We like to go to eat at Burger King and McDonald’s, but children only play with the plastic toys they give us for a few minutes before they get thrown away and harm animals and pollute the sea. We want anything they give to us to be sustainable so we can protect the planet for us and for future generations. After we learned about the environment and pollution in school we wanted to do everything we could to help. We put a poster up in the window of our house about saving the planet and we try and recycle as much as we can. But we want to do more, which is why we started this petition. It’s not enough to make recyclable plastic toys - big, rich companies shouldn’t be making toys out of plastic at all. Please help us get Burger King and McDonald’s to listen to us by signing our petition to help the environment. Ella and Caitlin age 9 and 7 German
Petition to Governo Federal, Ministério do Meio Ambiente
Stop the burning of the Amazon rainforest!
My name is Gabriel, I am a lawyer and I live in Rio Branco, in the heart of the Amazon. I am here because we need to ask all levels of Government in Brazil to mobilise and help us put an end to the burning of the Amazon rainforest! We are asking the authorities to set up an inquiry to investigate what is leading to the increase in fires in this region and hold the culprits to account. According to the Brazilian Space Agency, this year the number of Amazon forest fires increased 84% compared to the same period of 2018. And I live this daily, I have never seen so many fires in such a short time. There are 71,000 new fire points. More than half of the fires are in the Amazon, which is not only killing biodiversity and ecosystems, but also damaging the health of millions, especially the elderly and children who cannot breathe due to smoke. Last Monday afternoon, the population of São Paulo was surprised to see the city going dark at 3pm from the heavy smoke billowing from the fires in the North. And that made us understand one thing: it doesn't matter if we're northerners or southerners. Whether you are living on the banks of the river or an executive working in the city. The dismantling of environmental policies will affect all of us. An inquiry can help make sure this doesn’t happen again. Please help by signing.
Petition to United Nations, United Nations Environment Program
Protection of the Amazon
Take significant actions to stop the destruction of the Amazons. Amazons are vital for the survival of our planet, the inconsiderate deforestation, the fires that are on since more than 2 weeks are causing unrecoverable damage to our green lungs. It is not possible that a single country, or lobbies can hold in their hands the power to destroy vital resources for the all humanity. We globally demand the UN to regulate this massacre before it will be too late.
Petition to Government of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis
Save Aarey Forest
Hey guys, just got to know that BMC in Mahrashtra has allowed the cutting of more than 2700 trees in Aarey Forest for a metro car shed project. This is a huge a loss of biodiversity in India. Not only it's gonna affect our generation but also the future generations to come. Moreover, it will lead to an increase in pollution levels in Mumbai. Oxygen levels are already depleting and a foreign agency has also confirmed that we have only 3-5 years to change the climate and stop global warming or the situation will be worsen. So now it's time that we take a step forward and stand to protect our nature. Let's sign this petition and make the government realize their mistake and stop this deforestation.
Petition to Cheshire East Council, Disley Parish Council
Protect Disley’s Green Belt.
Cheshire East Council are planning to remove the Green Belt status from the land off Jackson’s Edge Road and Lymewood Drive adjacent to Disley Amalgamated Sports Club. A developer is proposing to build 73 new homes on this designated Green Belt area and plans to start work immediately. This will impact on the congested A6 and contribute even more to the existing dangerous air quality levels in the village. There we’ll be more congestion and impact on health. The area is home to a wide range of local wildlife and plans will involve the removal of a significant amount of trees. We want to protect our countryside. Disley has already been affected by a significant development at Waters Edge. We believe that there are a wide number of brown sites within Cheshire East that could be developed as an alternative and that’s Disley’s village character should be protected. We have until the end of the month to Save Disley’s Green Belt. Please sign our petition stop greedy developers ruining Green Belt land. Visit our website www.savedisleysgreenbelt.wordpress.com to find out how you can also object online directly to Cheshire East. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for all your support! Save Disley’s Green Belt Action Committee
Petition to shops
Stop the use of plastic bags
I am fed up of seeing people carrying loads of plastic shopping bags. They are completely unnecessary when there are reusable bags made of canvas etc. If shops stop providing them, the companies won't need to make them and people won't be able to buy them. The planet is declining at a rapid rate and something needs to be done.
Petition to Our headteacher
Let Hannah and Rosie strike for our climate!
Hi there, we are Hannah and Rosie and we are two very passionate young environmentalists. We want to do everything to protect both our futures and the future of our planet, our common home. Last week we set up an Eco Society at school and we are trying to reduce our use of plastic and our carbon footprints, this just shows what the earth means to us! This planet is our only hope of survival, so we must try and save it while we can - THERE IS NO PLANET B! Last week, we asked our headteacher for permission to attend the climate strike on September 20th, like many others around the world. She told us she could not let us protest as if she let us go, she would have to let everyone else in our school go. However, Rosie and I are the only people in our school who are interested, that we are aware of. We do not want to disrupt any of our friends' and fellow students' education, the only thing we want is to be able to protest against climate change, against the sixth mass extinction and against the end of the world as we know it. We understand that our headteacher's duty is to protect us and our education, but what is the point in an education if we do not have a future to use it in? We are asking you, the people, to sign this petition to support us in being able to fight for our futures. If this petition is successful, we would like to show this to our headmistress, so that she can see what this means to us, and what this means to all of you. Hopefully this might change her mind, and let us fight against the climate crisis head on by going to protests in the future! Thank you, Hannah and Rosie (We have not used our real names in this petition, as we do not want to get in trouble with our school)
Petition to Gauteng Provinical Government
#nobaggage - Ban plastic bags in Gauteng South Africa
South Africa’s oceans and rivers are plagued with single use plastic and specifically plastic bags. The environmental impact of plastic bags is massive and leads to further endangerment of many of South Africa’s species. Let us follow in the footsteps of other African countries and ban plastic bags.
