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.
Yeah like plastic made of hemp..
Yes many animals specially bovine are dying a slow death by eating plastic bags from the garbage dump.
It's devistaing to hear about the increasing numbers of endangered species due to plastic pullotion , Refuse disposable plastic as an individual and soon it will disappear from our community.
get a life
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:
Attention disorder ADHD.
Heart disease in women.
This is the list I was sent. Don't...
This is the list I was sent. Don't scare-monger and sell this petition based on fairy-tales and half-truths. But most particularly when the real science is impressive enough.
No non-science references used, Lorena.Links to the REAL Science that PPC is referring to and it is impressive: http://www.theplasticfreetimes.com/search/node/BpA
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.
And the answer is Hemp!!
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.
This cause is essential and needs to be addressed not just for humans & it is lethal for all living beings. One needs to singe this petition & always carry your shopping bags made of other fibers other than poly, like I myself keep some spare in my car just in case if leave in a hurry & miss out on it.
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.
Because Eco system and future need it!
It's not just BPA. Don't forget bisphenols of all types (especially BPS, a more toxic alternative to BPA in 'BPA free' products) and phthalates, of which one or the other is found in every plastic product known to man.
