Josh Frydenberg, Minster of Environment And Energy

Phase out micro beads in Australia by 2020 is vital it is having a serious effect on the environment, marine life and human health. This issue is becoming more important everyday do you want our lovely beaches and our ocean to become surrounded with micro plastic. That’s why we put an end to micro plastic manufacturing overseas ad stop importing the products into countries, and use ecofriendly options such as sea salt.

Not only our marine life is getting affected but studies show that 670 fish were examined and 35% of those 670 had micro plastic in their stomachs. This is vicious cycle when we put out micro plastic it is eventually come backing to us when eat fish. There are 330,000 microbeads in one tube of facewash and 1,147 personal cleansing products that contain microbeads. Billions of micro plastics is ending up in our waterways and causing damage for our marine life. It is then becoming dangerous for us, therefore change needs to happen sooner or later.
Do we really want to affect human health, marine life and the environment anymore then it is.

If we do something right now and put in place phasing out micro plastic by 2020 this will reduce the amount of micro pollution straight away.

If we want this issue addressed we need to put the power in Josh’s hands, we need someone with higher authority and especially a leader in environment services. We need to get the ball rolling to make change happen quickly before it’s too late.

Yours sincerely,
Byron Vickery

Mr Frydenberg you are the best person for this topic due to your role

and your word matters.

The more people sign this petition the more Mr Fydenberg will push to
phase out micro plastics by 2020. It gives him more reason to make change while if he only got a few people sign the petition. The issue will just get pushed to the side.
