Chick-fil-A: Replace Styrofoam Cups with Biodegradable Cups

Chick- fil- A is a beloved, family chain throughout the United States. While customers are drawn to their delicious chicken sandwiches and nuggets, they do not think of the impact that they are making when they order a drink along with it. Their drinks come in styrofoam cups.

Styrofoam is one of the most common forms of trash on our shores, causing harm to sea animals and birds. The plastic, also, takes thousands of years to break down. With the amount of styrofoam being used by giant companies, it will cause an uncontrollable plastic pile up, greater than what is already accumulating, today.

Although Chick- fil- A argues that they have places on site to recycle these cups, rarely do they get recycled. What is their argument for people ordering drinks through the drive- thru? And, for the people littering their Chick- fil- A cups? There is no way for them to monitor what their customers do with their cups after they are used. With biodegradable cups, the concerns arisen from styrofoam cups would be eliminated.

I am a 16 year old and writing this petition because I deeply care about the future of our planet. With companies looking for the quickest and cheapest ways to make money, they ignore the impact that their decisions will make in the years to come. Climate change and global warming have rapidly been advancing in the past decade; and I want to be able to enjoy the rest of my life, breathing freely in a world not damaged by pollution. Chick- fil- A could make a difference, and could use its influence to lead other companies into switching to biodegradable cups.

Our environment is rapidly changing due to pollution caused by plastic. Chick- fil- A: please help with the overflowing landfills and animals dying every day due to styrofoam. Change to biodegradable cups.
