Our country is being filled with plastic and trash every second of the day. When all that travels into the ocean, marine life gets affected by it. Majorly. Specifically plastic straws. Plastic straws get stuck inside sea turtles' noses and there is no way to get it out unless there is someone there to help them. Based on what I know, someone isn't near the ocean 24/7.

We can help the problem by reducing our use of plastic straws (those who use straws on a daily basis, please try and consider that our marine life is dying and reduce your use of plastic straws. Those who have conditions who need straws, I understand, but please try and understand my point of view that I'm trying to get across. I hope that we can at least live in a country where plastic straws are limited, possibly not entirely banned if that might please you more). Or, we could do something even bigger and have our country be banned from plastic straws. If we can get enough signatures and if the chance of that happening increase even by a little bit, I will be happy. And so will our marine life.

I started this petition because...
I'm a simple 11-year-old at a middle school full of students with dreams. My dream is to have plastic straws banned from the U.S. sometime in the future.
