Plastic Problems

Plastics are commonly used in our daily life. we think these are big help in our community but not knowingly, they are actually harmful not just to our society but to the world. it is a big problem bcause of decomposing, plastic will take us 10 - 1000 years and plastic bottles can take 450 years for them to be decomposed. It is a problem mostly to teenagers/millennials because it is being overused and teh use of plastic products has increased significantly in the recent past. Birds, Fish, and Shellfish can mistake plastic for food when it has broken down into smaller pieces. one in three sea turtles, and around 90% of seabirds have eaten it. They can't digest plastic so their stomachs can become full, meaning they don't have enough room for actual food. It will be a bigger problem in the near future mostly for teenagers/millennials. Today, plastic is being overused and not being recycled well. In the next 10 years where plastic are not decompose yet people's health will be affected, Tons of trash will be pour out in the ocean, Animal extinction, etc. Right now, 4 out of 10 Filipino teenagers still don't know how to properly use plastic and still don't know how to recycle well. This means, 4.5 million Teenagers in the Philippines have no education when it comes to Plastic Problems. If plastic continued to be overused, Toxic chemicals leach out of plastic and are found in the blood and tissue of nearly all of us. Exposure to them is linked to cancers, birth defects, impaired immunity, endocrine disruption and other ailments. Teenagers/Millennials will mostly be affected to it in the near future. Let this petition help Teenagers/Millennials to get educated to try saving our future. It's not to late.

Hey, Mass. State House, Don't Take My Vape, I'm an Adult

Massachusetts is one of the most liberal states in America. We were the state that legalized gay marriage first in 2003. We also were one of the states to have decriminalized, then legalized, marijuana earlier than other states. While we usually support an adult's right to choose what they do with they do with their body, this seems to stop when it comes to one's lungs.There are bills (House and Senate) before the Joint Committee on Public Health that seeks to ban the sale of flavored tobacco products in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This includes simple things like blunt wraps and menthol cigarettes. If the Committee gives their recommendation, this bill will begin the voting process to become law. I work at a local convenience store and I sell people cigarettes, both regular and electronic. Since the popularity of the e-cigarette has grown, so has the popularity of the e-cig as an alternative to smoking. Before my eyes, I've seen customers save money in their pockets and time in their lives as well. However, some people aren't up to date.Maura Healy, along with other moralists like Rep. Danielle Gregoire and John F. Keenan, has fashioned themselves as our self-imposed parents. We saw it in Mamma Maura's failed opposition for Marijuana. They all continue their pursuit of perfect adult-children with their consistant advocacy for a Tobacco-Free Massachusetts. However, she is not advocating this through education and proper legislation. Instead, they choose inefficient and improper bans. So please sign this and tell the Joint Committee Committee on Public Health that we don't want State Congresspersons to act as our parents. We can look after ourselves and make our own decisions.
