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 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 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
Mid-twentieth Century a consumer revolution began along America’s front lines: technology squared economic growth, military and petroleum framed policy and mobilization gave way to suburbia. Fueled by technological optimism, market broadcast an era of leisure and an ethos of disposability. Credit tempted, “Buy now, pay later” while resource wars and cheap oil afforded economies of scale and designed obsolescence.

Conflict is escalating between the ecosystems that sustain us and our present course of development. Consumerism, waste and pollution have been metastasizing globally in pandemic proportions. Metabolisms of the modern lifestyle swell, shadowing landscapes, atmosphere and seas. Obsolescence has served as society’s manufacturing mantra, while garbage choke points echo a resource curse. Disposability and sprawl have shepherded our society to a juncture between development and sustainability. Their wakes rise like terrible seas, obscuring equable horizons.
Conservative expense of manufacture, deficiencies in regulation and their amorphous nature have granted plastic household dominion. For over a century, their broadcast has been crescendoing. Aided by gravity, plastics have been running downhill and downstream, concentrating in our oceans and throughout the food web (including us).
Plastic pollution presents multiple global challenges. How do we stem their flow into our homes, watersheds, landscapes and food webs? How do we remediate this toxic legacy?
Plastic pollution unites not only life forms, but also forms of pollution. Plastic pollution can serve as a cornerstone in the beginnings of a dialogue between all sectors of society to address strategies for our endurance and perseverance on this blue planet. Government influences the fabric of our daily lives, yet people are able to incline government (and market) to institute changes. We are living in exciting and uncertain times; we are bearing witness to nature’s economy, punctuated financial collapses and great social awakenings. Community is appropriate technology, a repository of ecological knowledge. We have the opportunity to foster biocultural restoration and intergenerational equity. Now is the time to rise to the challenges that are before us and employ nature's prescriptive for mutual flourishing. Nature is much more than a machine; nature is us. As the Hopi prophecy states, "We are the ones we have been waiting for."
its for everyones own good, and for the planet itself.
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.
Caritas Karachi under Livelihood program promote the ideas of use plastic bottles to create gardens, by recycling large plastic bottle to create vertical tower gardens in different Schools of the less privilege areas of Karachi.it is a simple and effective tool in the global fight against hunger and malnutrition. my email id is [email protected].
