WAWA - stop using plastic beverage stirrers

This petition had 3,860 supporters

We all love our neighborhood WAWA - great coffee, delicious hoagies, and convenient locations, but WAWA needs to be a more environmentally responsible corporation by reducing the use of single-use plastics. I'm asking that they start by substituting the red plastic stirrers with a biodegradable alternative - there are many to choose from - wood, bamboo etc.

Single-use plastics, such as plastic bags, cup lids, stirrers, knives & forks are used once, then thrown away. But where is 'away'? This plastic will be around FOREVER. It doesn't biodegrade, it just breaks down into tiny particles that ultimately end up in our drinking water and food chain. It is a worldwide ecological problem.

The toxic chemicals in these plastic particles can be found in our bloodstream. And the latest research has linked them to cancer, infertility, birth defects, impaired immunity and many other ailments.

We can drastically reduce our consumption of single-use plastic by making small changes to our lifestyle, and we can persuade corporations like WAWA to do the same.

Please sign this petition!
