Mia Zagariello started this petition to 4Ocean

Hello, my name is Mia Faith Zagariello and I am from Long Island, New York. I am a very adventurous girl who loves the ocean. In the summer I enjoy surfing and going in the ocean. I am a formal 4ocean ambassador. 4ocean is an amazing team that makes a profit while cleaning our oceans. My goal is to remove/ban all plastic starting on Long Island and hopefully nation wide. Our sea creatures need our help to survive. When you use one plastic straw and throw it on the ground after you're done using it, that straw could end up in the ocean. A turtle could be swimming and sees that straw thinking its their next meal. Sooner than you know it that turtle is choking on the straw and dies. Horrible right? Plastic is a huge problem with our oceans. With plastic straws getting stuck in a precious creatures throat, plastic bags over a seals head, and think about how gross it is to swim in an ocean full of used plastic. An alternative to plastic are reusable metal straws, reusable bags, reusable bottles, and there are so many more environment safe options. Sometimes plastic is a need or is very difficult to not use, so instead of throwing out that plastic when you're done you can recycle it or find another use for it.
