Fight Against the Sell of Plastic Water Bottles | Petition
Notes by others that have signed this Petition.
- We desperately need to find alternatives to plastic, especially water bottles. I live along the coast, regularly walk miles on the beach, and have hauled off bag after bag of bottles, year after year. It is daunting to see the amount of plastic on the beach, from miniscule bits to large plastic totes, among all the other garbage washing ashore. How do we expect our oceans to survive and flourish, and sustain the 7 billion humans on this planet, when we use it as our continual dumping ground?
- Water bottles, which are thrown away after one use, are a complete waste of resources, and often end up in the water, photo-degrading while they absorb toxic chemicals. Then they become fish food -- and then eventually human food when we eat the fish. Our society thrived for centuries without single-use plastic. It's time to find substitutes!
- I want the sale of plastic water bottles to stop. Its foolish and wasteful, as well as killing our environment.
- We have devastated our oceans and marine life enough. Please fight to ensure that we can protect what is left. Our Pacific NW waters are unique with organisms that will be killed if we do not act. Please stand against off-shore drilling.
- Please stop the sale of plastic water bottles, for the benefit of our nation, our environment, and our world.
- This planet encompasses a gift so subtle that it would vanish into thin air were it not held fast by attentive curiosity. (A Pocket Mirror for Heroes).
- There are a million different reusable water bottle solutions - plastic bottles are NOT necessary anymore! Let congress hear that we need to explore alternative solutions!
- Stop the selling of plastic water bottles.
- Our Oceans are suffering enough!! Why is congress putting more effort into making the problem worse than fixing it! Shame
- Governments purpose is to preserve.. life, liberty, and peace.. this drilling goes against that
- They're other alternatives to plastic bottles, a huge pollutant to the ocean and user of crude oil. Think about your great grandchildrens futures and the world they will live in. I urge you to Reverse the harm we have done to this planet.
