Li Ganjie (Minister of Environmental Protection within china)

Dear Li Ganjie (Minister of Environmental Protection within China) my campaign that I have made is to see what really happens to plastic when it enters our ocean how it affects our oceans environment, sea animals and also how it affects us, humans. I want China to put a ban on all plastic food items such as plastic bottles and plastic bags. The reasoning I want China to understand is because they might have not even understood how much was at stake for the survival of our ocean.
300 million tons of fossil fuel-based plastic are sold each year and 90% of that is thrown away, destroying our food, our water, and our health. Did you know that 88% of our ocean is affected by plastic trash floating in our ocean which causes over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals to be killed by plastic pollution every year? China contributes 1 million and 50 thousand of 8 million plastic bottles that are thrown into our ocean every year. These numbers are way to high and something needs to happen before it's too late. I suggest that we ban all non-recyclable plastics and put a ban on plastic bags and bottles and make it a rule that we need to use reusable bags and bottles. China alone has produced 13% of plastic pollution in the world. If nothing is done then these numbers could double maybe even triple within a few years. If we got China to support my campaign and take action to help clean up our ocean from plastic we would see a drastic drop of sea animals lives being taken every year from plastic pollution and we would also be saving our world one bottle at a time.

Daniel Quinn

This action will help make a change in the world of plastic pollution

and will make a huge step towards cleaning up our ocean and getting rid of plastic pollution. By this step, it will make massive effects on China's economy and will also make it a much nicer place to visit. It will also show that China one of the biggest countries in the world is taking a change in the world and it may persuade other countries to take a change as well.

I believe that China should take action because it will be one more step towards making our world a better place it will also show that China has taken a change for the survival of our planet. And if China has made a change for the survival of our plant why can't we all do the same.

I believe that we should all take a look at why we need change and its because we need to change our world for the better. If we are to live in our world for billions of years to come why don't we clean up the mess that we created and not leave it for someone else to clean it up for us. If it is our mess we made we are the ones responsible for it and by signing this petition it will show your support towards helping make a change for the better.
