Petition to United Nations, European Parliament, Justin Trudeau, Pablo Iglesias, Greenpeace USA,


We all know that since the early 1900's that plastic has steadily become more mass produced each year with no end in sight. Nowadays we are all aware of the problems that plastic can cause in the enviroment but it has been difficult for our society to change this habit. The new generation of youth want to still have a planet and that's why we are offering what we think could be the biggest step in this race against plastic production.  Green rating is a new way to fight agaist plastic production by targeting the market, we want to offert a system that will provided a rating to each business to assess it's overall eco-friendliness so that consumers thoroughly understand what type of business they are supporting. Our goal is to implement this same rating system with not only businesses but each individual product on the market as well. However, we know that change needs to happen step by step and are willing to put in the time and effort to make this happen but we need the publics support. With this policy we're hoping to alter consumers shopping habits and patterns. With our policy consumers will throughly understand the industries they are supporting and where they should be spending their money to ensure that the planet will still be habitable in the next 30-40 years and hopefully continue to stay that way for generations to come.  You can visit our website for more details and for our contact information:

Petition to Ministerio de Agricultura y Pesca, Alimentación y Medio Ambiente

Prohibir los guantes de plástico en las estaciones de servicio

(English below) EL PROBLEMA La generación de residuos plásticos por los guantes que las estaciones de servicio distribuyen en forma gratuita para que los propios usuarios carguemos combustible (ahorrándose el coste de personal) crea los mismos problemas para el medio ambiente que las bolsas de plástico en los comercios. Todos los días, de camino al trabajo, recorro 100 metros de una vereda llena de guantes de plástico descartables que se vuelan desde una estación de servicio cercana. Me acerqué a la estación de servicio pidiéndoles que se hicieran cargo de la limpieza y me contestaron que no era su responsabilidad. Es cierto, es nuestra responsabilidad. COMO NOS AFECTA A TODOS Los motivos de la petición están el el propio decreto citado: Real decreto sobre la bolsas de plástico TONELADAS DE PLÁSTICO EN LOS OCÉANOS Y PASOS DADOS "A nivel mundial terminan en los océanos todos los años de 5 a 13 millones de toneladas de plásticos, entre el 1,5 y el 4% de la producción total (solo en las aguas de la UE entre 150.000 y 500.000 toneladas anualmente), y las bolsas de plástico se encuentran entre los diez artículos de plástico presentes en nuestras basuras marinas. El 89% de las bolsas de plástico sólo se usa una vez durante 12-25 minutos de media y tardan entre 100 y 500 años en descomponerse totalmente."  LA SOLUCIÓNAsí como el 18 de mayo de 2018 se aprobó el Real Decreto sobre la reducción del consumo de bolsas de plástico, propongo que se estudie la prohibición de los guantes de plástico en las estaciones de servicio.   -------------------------------------------------------------------- English version -------------------------------------------------------------------- THE PROBLEM The generation of plastic waste by the gloves that the service stations distribute free of charge so that the users themselves can refuel (saving the cost of personnel) creates the same problems for the environment as the plastic bags in the shops. Every day, on my way to work, I walk 100 meters down a sidewalk full of disposable plastic gloves that fly from a nearby gas station. I approached the gas station asking them to take care of the cleaning and they told me that it was not their responsibility. It's true, it's our responsibility. HOW IT AFFECTS US ALL The reasons for the request are in the decree itself cited: Royal Decree on Plastic Bags TONS OF PLASTIC IN THE OCEANS AND STEPS TAKEN "Worldwide, between 5 and 13 million tonnes of plastics end up in the oceans every year, between 1.5 and 4% of total production (in EU waters alone between 150,000 and 500,000 tonnes annually), and plastic bags are among the ten plastic items present in our marine debris. 89% of plastic bags are only used once for 12-25 minutes on average and take between 100 and 500 years to decompose completely." THE SOLUTIONJust as the Royal Decree on the reduction of consumption of plastic bags was adopted on 18 May 2018, I propose that a ban on plastic gloves in service stations be considered.
