Hold them accountable

Re: Plastics ban 

I support the “Total Ban” on plastics from Styrofoam to single use plastic bags. When we look at what is plastics are and the impact on the ecosystem, we do need to worry. 

In one part of the world where they rely on fishing as their livelihoods, every fish contained plastic. 

From sizable through to being microorganism. Even in New Zealand, it has been reported and concluded that our fish contain Plastic. 

There needs to be a group of Pacific Island leaders grouping together and giving the producing nations a very stern word! 

Also research! 

The plastics industries need to be held accountable as the long-term impact is only looking worse. It’s a bit like smoking. No one told us older generations of it’s health impact until it was too late. 

If something is not done now, yesteryear would have been better.
