ABOUT THE PETITION
What’s happening around you?
Countless governments today have passed regulations to ban the use of single-use plastics in bags, cutlery, straws, and more such items—unfortunately none of these regulations include the ban of disposable plastic razors.
We know the problem. We have the solution. Let’s take action.
In gathering support through this petition, we want our governments to draft regulations and take serious measures to ban the sale of disposable plastic razors.
This is only just the beginning. Once victory is declared within Canada and the US, we will continue to strive for global change.
We can achieve this with your support.
When you sign this petition, we will send an official letter to the concerned representative from your government responsible for drafting and implementing regulations.
In Canada, your letters will be addressed to The Honorable Steven Guilbeault, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change.
In USA, your letters will be addressed to The Honorable Michael S. Regan, the Administrator of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency.
A simple change that can create a massive impact is revolutionizing our shaving methods.
