Support a ban on use of asbestos material.

Petition Text

Enact legislature to ban any further use of asbestos for construction in any building, bridge, wall, pipe and/or any item near humans and/or their habitats and water sources.

Why is this important?

This petition is being presented in order that the Environmental Protection Agency uphold their due diligence to keep citizens of the United States safe from scientifically proven harmful asbestos materials that is found to cause various health issues, determined hazardous and removal of same done only through approved hazardous waste removal.

Also the United States has imposed sanctions on Russia. An article published on MSN “Love MONEY” titled “BUSINESSES THAT ARE BOOMING UNDER THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION” (business #31), by Daniel Coughlin dated 8/13/2018, states “URALASBEST: Russian asbestos producer Uralasbest is stamping pallets of the substance with an image of President Trump. This follows the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recent decision not to impose a blanket ban on it. Uralasbest is to profit considerably from the decision.”

The president has endorsed the use of asbestos again. This will allow Russia to benefit financially as well as contradicting the importance of EPA standards.

Please sign the petition to urge our representatives to ban the use of asbestos being used harming thousands of citizens, the environment and planet as well as allowing Russia to benefit financially.
