Chick-Fil-A: Stop the Styrofoam!!

This petition had 778 supporters

Mr. Cathy,

As someone who cares deeply about our environment, I'm writing to ask Chick-Fil-A to STOP using styrofoam cups. The particles created from disposal of these cups are being eaten by wildlife and endangering their lives. Polystyrene is also dangerous to humans, and its chemicals easily leech into our drinks. If we continue to destroy our ecosystem through the irresponsible use of nonbiodegradable materials, our planet will not be able to continue supporting us.

Other food industry giants have stepped up their game and ditched styrofoam for more sustainable packaging. It's time you came on board. You might say that your cups are being used to make benches, but in all honesty that is not any better. Millions of cups still get thrown away without being saved for benches. Even still, you cannot recycle these cups into more cups, and so the production continues along with the destruction of our environment.

After reading your bio on the Chick-Fil-A website, I know you're a man who enjoys nature and animals. Don't you want to protect that for yourself, your family, and many generations to come? Do the right thing, and switch over to paper. It's more eco-friendly, more sustainable, more recyclable, and overall the better choice for your company and the planet. Thank you for your time and your advocacy for us all.
