Trump: Replace Ban on Plastic Bottles in National Parks

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Demand President Trump rescind permission for sale of bottled drinks in national parks.

President Trump has repealed an Obama-era ban on the sale of bottled drinks in national parks. The ban had been in effect for six years, reducing pollution significantly, but the beverage industry had been trying to fight it from day one. Now, thanks to Trump, they have the green light to sell as many plastic bottles as they please.

Plastic bottles are extremely harmful to the environment. They are not biodegradable, and at least half of the pollution on this planet is made up of these bottles. Furthermore, they are dangerous to wildlife; animals mistake the caps for food and eat them, resulting in death by intestinal blockage. The pollution count will rise again thanks to Trump taking the side of big business over the well-being of our planet.

We cannot allow our parks and their wildlife to be at the mercy of plastic. Sign this petition to demand Trump put the ban back in place immediately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President,

Your repeal of the ban on bottled drink sales in national parks is unacceptable. For the past six years, we were seeing a significant decrease in the pollution made up of plastic bottles, but you have taken the side of big business over the well-being of this planet once again. Plastic bottles are not biodegradable, and the chemicals found within their makeup does severe harm to the soil and plant life. Wild animals eat the caps, mistaking them for food, and die from the subsequent intestinal blockages.

You must rescind the permission granted to the beverage companies to sell bottled drinks, and keep the ban in place. These parks are much too important to allow them and their wildlife to be threatened by pollution.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
