Our petition to governments is to remind them that we as voters have the right to vote for a government that takes care of the marine environment.
We demand all state and federal governments enforce stronger laws on waste being dumped in to our water ways and oceans.
The United Nations Environment Programme estimated in 2006 that every square mile of ocean contains 46,000 pieces of floating plastic. Plastic debris causes the deaths of more than a million seabirds every year, as well as more than 100,000 marine mammals a week. Once discarded, plastics are weathered and eroded into very small fragments known as micro-plastics. These together with plastic pellets are already found in most beaches around the world
