Yes ,plastic pollution is a great threat to the environment. In India and other national parks of the world plastic left behind by the visitors is eaten by the animals ,which gets lodged in their stomach and can never be digested by the animal , causing its painful death.The oceans ,rivers and other water bodies too are polluted with plastic all over the world. Why cant bio degradable bags and articles be made compulsory.

Lose yours with that attitude. We don't have another planet where we can move when this one is destroyed!

I totally agree with the reduation in use of plastic and the removal of cancer-causing chemicals. However, I DON'T agree with receiving emails from this group filled with non-science. Don't scare-monger by suggesting BPA causes the list below: Show me/us the weblinks to the studies that prove BPA causes:

Autism
Attention disorder ADHD.
Erectile dysfunction
Heart disease in women.
Depression
Learning disorders
Asthma
Obesity
Type-2 diabetes
Infertility?

This is the list I was sent. Don't...

I just noticed what damage we do day by day. I just notice that nothing will ever change if we don't start now. This is the last train for us to catch or we will be done with this planet. If we don't have the courage and will to do something now, we can give up already! We need to stop the plastic pollution, we need to stop the deforestation and we need to use green energy. And we need to start now. Now or never.

I have known about the plastic in the ocean for some years. It was an issue I discussed with my students while I was teaching. I can't emphasize enough how important the ocean is to life. I'm fortunate to live only four miles from the Pacific. My uncle and dad were boat builders. Please share the knowledge with as many people, young and old, as you can.

Plastic should be banned all over the world, there is no need for non bio degradable substances on the planet, never the mind the fact that often the products break quickly and are discarded so readily.

I don't even know where to begin with this one. There are too many people (recently includes myself) that are not aware of the products contained with polymer chemicals. For ALL TEACHERS/PARENTS start researching this because we are exposing this to our children every day. ***Instant snow craft projects, tampons (TSS), diapers, plastic bottles, and so much more all compounds of the same chemicals. These chemicals cause contact dermatitis, neurological disorders (Hmmm... makes me think about...

These chemicals cause contact dermatitis, neurological disorders (Hmmm... makes me think about Autism!), respiratory disorders, and more! YES, I think it is safe to say that plastics are hazardous to our health and environment. My son's fingertips cracked and bled after playing with instant snow from dunecraft, inc. And the best part.. Dunecraft, inc labels their products as non-toxic and made in USA.

I am honestly not a big believer is recycling plastic. It brings down the volume but the process of recycling cannot be good for the environment with the amount of heat to mix the plastic chemicals. And even though they took BPA out of most plastics on the market they aren't going to tell you they replaced it with another harmful chemical.

Le plastique a envahi notre vie et malgré l'impossibilité de le détruire, notre société continue à l'employer à outrance alors qu'il serait facile dans beaucoup de cas de le remplacer par des matériaux bio-dégradables.
