The iBan Plastic petition had become a gathering ground for like-minded individuals. People who were, not just aware of their environment, but also actively working on lowering their own amount of plastic usage. But, we knew, that any significant change has to come from the top. It is the design choice of the big corporations that make the most significant difference. And there was no way these billion dollar businesses were going to bow down to mere 2,000 signatures.
So then, how about 200,000 or even 1 million signatures? Heck, if we sincerely consider plastic pollution to be one of the biggest crisis threatening our environment, then, why not make this, one of the largest petitions online. And we only need a trickle of our entire population to make that happen. If just 5 million out of the 7.5 billion people, that call this planet home, unite for this vital cause, then we are sure all the 7-eleven’s, Coca-Cola’s, Hungry Jack’s, Family Mart’s, Tesco’s etc. will no longer be able to, or rather afford to, ignore our petition. With this number, even the governments of different nations are bound to take notice, leading to the creation of laws and legislation that curb plastic pollution.
By breaking across borders of different countries around the world, iBan Plastic has shown us the power of the human race when they unite for a cause. After all, plastic pollution is not restricted by the borders of any country and will continue to spread till it has suffocated the life out of our beautiful planet. iBan Plastic stands tall in the face of this crisis, and it is because of each and every one of us that supports it, no matter where we live. So, which side are you on?
