Plastic is something extremely dangerous to the environment yet many people continue to litter because they see no immediate effect it has on us. Unfortunately, although plastic is a useful product, many of these products are created for single-use - with an estimated 60 per cent of plastic used once and thrown away. Not only is this harmful to the environment and the oceans, but it is also harmful to wildlife - where it impacts nearly 700 species in the ocean, and humans. One of the most effective ways to reduce the use of plastic globally is to start implementing paper straws into our daily lives which are biodegradable and more ecofriendly to the environment. We want to encourage people to stop using plastic straws for good. In less than 10 years, scientists predict that there will be 250 million metric tons in the ocean and by 2050, there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish.

To our knowledge, there isn't much education throughout Southern Africa on the effects of plastic on the environment and spreading education on such large issues such as this one through petitions can educate young potential and revolutionary minds to change the world one step at a time. the environment has become something so precarious that only we can fix. mother Earth is deforming and she needs you to save her by signing this petition. not only will you be saving man kind, but you will also be saving all of the animals that die at our cost.

Please share this petition with your friends and family so it can be sent to the major companies, Ceres and Liqui Fruit with hopes of inspiring change within them by changing their plastic straws on their juice boxes with paper straws.
