STOP SINGLE USE PLASTIC
New Zealander's have a duty to protect our ocean and all marine life that depend on such an incredible life support system for Survival. I am calling on the Ministers charged with protecting our environment to ban the use of single use plastic shopping bags and plastic straws on a Nationwide basis, Every kiwi should get behind this and demand the ditching of single use plastic and ensure protection of our incredible Marine life. I am calling on the Ministers charged with protecting our environment to ban the use of single use plastic shopping bags and plastic straws on a Nationwide basis.
Why is this important?
By 2050 Almost every seabird on the planet will be suffering because of it, Earth's most precious and incredible life support system is choking right now because of it and yet massive corporations continue to dump the equivalent of a truckload of it into our Ocean every minute!
I deeply care about the protection of our Marine Life and preservation of our planets most important life support system
The devastating impact of discarded plastic packaging has now reached every corner of the world's oceans. The tide of plastic bottles and bags continues to roll in yet the shores it has to wash up on are fast depleting and sea creatures like turtles and seabirds are been forced to ingest this senseless waste. It makes sense to demand that those corporations responsible invest in sustainable packaging solutions. If we don't do our best to give our planets health the protection it deserves...who will ?
