Environmental impact using the plastic straw

This petition had 357 supporters


This is a major problem for wildlife and marine life. The plastic the straws are made of can take up to 200 years to decay if at all. 

Children are the majority users of straws and are not educated enough to know the environmental impact caused by this issue and often litter or drop them not realizing the harm they are potentially causing to sealife and land animals. Most rubbish littered on the beaches ends up in the ocean its the marine life that suffer from life threatening and often fatal injuries. Paper straws are a much better alternative to plastic and i encourage if people must buy them to at least try paper.
