Send us photographs and we’ll post on the state page where plastic pollution is happening.
We must reduce plastic pollution to save all of our environment. This includes all of the Earth’s oceans and every living creature in the oceans. But, it also includes creatures and living things on land. The Break Free From Plastic Pollution bill would significantly reduce the production of these products in the United States. Less plastic production will use less fossil fuels, like coal and natural gas. Less manufacturing of these single-use and disposable products will decrease greenhouse gas emissions, which is a major driver of climate change. Daviann McClurg, Larned KS
We need to protect all the animals and other living things in the ocean before its too late. Stop putting plastic in the ocean by going to a material that can be reused over and over again. Stopping plastic pollution saves the oceans and everything in them. Now is the time to support this bill. Thank you. I don’t use plastic that much and I use it over and over again. I make sure it is recycled when I finish using it so no animal or the ocean will be hurt. Everyone should do the same. Veda Joy, Leavenworth KS
Our river and ocean inhabitants are dying from ingesting plastics, or their getting caught in the debris of plastic. Support passage of this bill for less fossil fuels damaging the land, waters and air. Less animals/marine life dying. Cammy Colton, Overland Park KS
Eventually, everyone will be affected and not be able to escape the effects on their health as well as the obvious destruction of our beautiful world. We survived without plastic and have so many better options today. All of us enjoy the beauty of our earth, but for animals, it is a matter of life and death. Considering that we ingest these animals, it is a matter of our health/death as well. I CARE about the earth. Dorothea Paiva, Prairie Village KS
Stopping plastic pollution is important because we don’t want to see sea animals dying from the plastic that is being dumped in the oceans, and for our mental well-being of knowing conditions are improving for oceans Rhonda Pfaff-Eaves, Wamego KS
Plastic is everywhere and its abundance will have unexpected health consequences. It is not compostable and adds to our landfills, when it makes it into the waste system. When it does not make it to the landfill it ends up on our streets which empty into our streams, rivers and oceans. When it does break down in oceans, its absorbed into sea creatures’ tissues and then we or some other creature eats them. I really don’t need plastic in my cells; I’m bionic enough. Pamela Glaze, Louisville KY
You see this? It’s plastic. We don’t like that. Plastic is bad. Get rid of plastic – I have, you will… Spread the message: Plastic. Bad… No plastic. William (Beam me up, Scotty) Shatner, 360-acre horse farm in Kentucky.
Plastics are bad for the earth. Sponsor this bill to help the environment. Tina Lamia, New Orleans LA
