Yes. It's about time the planet came first. Not big business and small politicians.
Only one planet.
It’s way past time to stop using and producing single-use plastic. I live in NYC and carry a reusable bag and reusable water bottle EVERYWHERE I go, even when I travel overseas. It can be done. Is it inconvenient at times? Sometimes, but it’s WELL worth the small effort it takes and over the few years I’ve been doing this, I have save thousands of plastic bags from being introduced into landfills and the ocean.
Is there any good reason why we can not go back to glass ?
We urgently need to ban ver packaging and find viable alternatives for single use plastic products.
I am old enough to remember when produce was not pre-packaged except for a few items like potatoes which came in heavy paper packaging, with a window to see what type of potato was inside. We could pick out the vegetables or fruit that we liked and put it into a paper bag. At that time there were produce clerks who would then weigh and put the price on the bag. That extra step is no longer needed but it was nice to have the personal interaction, plus the produce clerks were generally knowledgeable about the products in their area. When pre-packaged fruit and vegetables became available I did not like it and preferred to pick out my own. I think that it would be easy to go back to this system.
We need better solutions. This is getting pretty ridiculous. Safely degradable plastics can be made available through market or social pressures.
Other options are available to replace plastic. Political will is all that's lacking to make those options widely available.
As an offshore sailor, I saw evidence of the huge scope of plastic pollution first hand. We all have to take action or lose our planet.
If I can refuse plastic, so can you. Please use recyclable materials.
This something we can actually CHANGE!! Let's DO IT!!
Please protect the earth for the sake of our children, grandchildren and beyond.
End singleuse plastic NOW!!
If we can land a human in the moon, surely we can find feasible alternatives to our single-use plastic habit.
So very important to start working on a circular economy!
Let's end with one use plastic packaging and items! Plastic is a design choice, let the industry chose not to use it and find alternatives for it.
The world needs plastics that can naturally degrade in the environment without harming it! It is ridiculous that people are still choosing to ignore this issue.
Ban plastics for a better future. We made this mess so we all need to help reverse it.
We’re hurting our home, let’s be more sustainable together
Ban plastic save the environment!
There are better biodegradable options for oil based plastic. Phase those out and bring in plant based plastic.
Why does MY sex have ANYTHING to do with plastic bags ???

Pollution is a design and marketing choice. Change how you package and people will still consume.
