Plastic bags are everywhere. Look around and you will notice that plastic bags are the most common litter. Tangled in trees and fences along roads, floating in water, lying on the ground in parks and forests, surrounding garbage bins, washed off on beaches. Because they are so lightweight, plastic bags get easily picked up by wind and travel long distances by wind and water to pollute the nature.

Plastic bag litter has even caused great problems in some areas. For example, millions of discarded plastic bags clog water drainage channels and sewers in urban areas of Bangladesh. When the monsoon rains start, streets get waterlogged just after the first few minutes because the water cannot pass through clogged sewerage pipes.


Motive to write the petition

10 reasons why we should not use plastic bags

  1. Made from fossil fuels
  2. Cause of environmental pollution
  3. Problematic degradation
  4. Killing wildlife
  5. Harmful to human health
  6. Not easy to recycle
  7. High costs for cleanup
  8. Come with external costs
  9. Better alternatives are available
  10. Bans in other countries


Anticipate Action

I am suggesting to take strict action against all plastic bag production factories and should introduce cloth bags and paper bags, also educate people to not use plastic bags even any shopkeeper offer them they should refuse to take plastic bag in hand.
