Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Worldwide, we use 1 billion plastic bags and 500 million straws per day. All this plastic finds its way to our oceans and kills animals;
  • Single-use plastics (plastic bags, pop and water bottles, Q-tips, coffee stirrers and straws) take hundreds of years to biodegrade; and
  • All that plastic breaks up into little parts (called microplastics) and we end up drinking the water and eating the animals that have accumulated these plastics.
We, the undersigned, Grade 5 citizens of Canada at Knoxdale Public School, call upon the Government of Canada to to ban single-use plastics, in whole or in part, in Canada.
