No sitting on the fence! Discarded plastic curtesy of “Anagram”. A considerate note on this balloon warns that it must not be released outdoors in California ...... i suppose the rest of the planet is ok? I generally pick up one or two of these a week. https://www.flickr.com/photos/145360468@N05/48840217372/in/photolist-2hpQT4j-61H5Ch-b44wMK Ramsholt, Suffolk Coastal District, England
Around the world, birds and other wildlife are picking up plastics mistaken as food and succumb from consuming the plastics or regurgitate the plastics, along with food, to their young who then die due to lack of nutrition or impaction of plastic in the digestive tract.
The public is invited Tues May 28th at 5:00 pm to attend the Cleveland Cuyahoga County City Council Meeting to witness the passage of historic legislation and celebrate this momenteus occasion - to ban single-use plastic bags in Cuyahoga County.
On May 28, 2019 Cuyahoga County Council will likely turn into law a ban on single use plastic bags as a means to transport purchased items in Cuyahoga County. This action is to address environmental public health for us and future generations. The ban will encourage recyclable bag use. At Wendy Park, Cleveland, Ohio Saturday, May 11, 2019.
“The Ohio Senate proposed Senate Bill 210, which would prohibit local government from regulating disposable containers. So, there you have it, there was an effort to reduce the plastic bags, but they moved forward on a state level, to prevent local governments from regulating disposable containers.”
