Petition to Coca-Cola
Get Coca Cola to sell their soft drinks in syrup form and from dispensing machines.
Coca Cola is considered one of the biggest polluters on the planet. https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2019/10/29/coca-cola-named-the-worlds-most-polluting-brand-in-plastic-waste-audit/amp/ If Coke sold and marketed it's delicious, thirst quenching products in syrup form, for use in Soda Stream machines. And also increased the presence of dispensing machines and allowed people to fill their own bottles. It could greatly reduce the amount of plastic waste ending up in our environment, especially our oceans.
Petition to connie cotsis
Ban plastic straws in all fast food restaurants.
Plastic straws are something that is affecting our planet. All the turtles being killed daily because of our poor choices in plastic straws. Sometimes you don't have a choice because the fast food restaurants only give us the option of a plastic straw. I think it is about time we all stand together and make a difference. Help our planet. Together as a community. Save our planet for our future generations. Think about where your plastic straw goes. Everyday over 8 million metric tons of plastic goes into our ocean every year. Where our children swim and where our wildlife live. They say at this rate the amount of plastic in the oceans will overweigh the amount of fish in the ocean by 2050 if we don't do something about it now. Act now to help our future generations. All the because we want to have a drink or cant be bothered getting a plastic straw. To be honest to do not blame you. But if we sign a petition to ban them then we won't have to make that decision and chosing and making platsic straws in all fast food resturants will be one step towards our goal to save the planet for our future and current people of the world. Our would is such a beautiful place and it would be such a waste if we didn't look after the beautiful planet we were given. So please, take a stand with me, save our planet.
Petition to Newcastle city council, Ms Sharon Claydon MP
Stop Plastic Straw Use in Newcastle City Council
Plastic straws are making their way into the ocean, potentially harming marine wildlife such as turtles. With so many plastic straws being handed out in cafes and businesses, this plastic waste is not recyclable and goes to landfill - if they aren't littered. Then they make their way to Newcastle's beaches, and the ocean, polluting plastic and after time the chemicals within them (such as the endocrine disrupting BPA). This litter is particularly abundant around cafes and fast food restaurants as well as schools from canteens with plastic straws - using plastic over paper for slushies etc. has resulted in large amounts of needless plastic waste. The lives of marine life can be saved by making the simple switch to paper straws or reysable straws over plastic. You can help support the environment by limiting plastic straw use and approaching your council to stop plastoc straws.
