Help Us! Not one More Plastic Bag From Qatar in the Persian Gulf!
Many countries and cities have already banned plastic bags and their residents changed their ways. Don’t allow another plastic bag to end up in our sea or nature. We have all seen sea creatures trapped in plastic or dying due to consumption of plastics, but even worse damage is done at a micro level with the plastic waste breaking down into tiny toxic bits that end up virtually everywhere, including our plates and in our children’s tiny bodies.

A 2016 study has shown that microplastics are already very widespread in Qatar’s marine waters . To stop the damage, we need to tackle the problem at the source. A good starting place is to ask all local supermarkets to stop the distribution of single-use plastic bags. But for them to hear us, we need your support to gather as many signatures as possible.
Our message to the supermarkets operating in Doha:
We, your customers, ask that you:
1. quickly stop providing plastic bags at your cashiers and offer alternatives that are reusable and sustainable (such as jute)
2. replace the plastic bags currently used for produces with bags that are compostable or even reusable
3. Start offering a variety of reusable products; plan on increasing selling in bulk and on decreasing packaging
By just taking a few seconds to sign this petition and by sharing it enthusiastically around you, you will make a huge difference.
Our children deserve better
Let Qatar become a leader and a model in caring for its environment and protecting it for future generations
