Glenn Roe started this petition to Dairy Queen and

As a new resident of the Hiawatha Neighborhood in South Minneapolis, I have found joy in walking the trails by the Minnehaha falls. The trees and being nature by the rumbling of the water from the falls and following it to the Mississippi is so enjoyable. The wildlife one can see on the trails includes gophers, squirrels, blue herons, wild turkeys, Eagles, and so much more. 

As I have noted I enjoy our trails and love being in nature. What has me concerned is the amount of litter one can find on the trails. It has gotten to the point that I will bring a garbage bag with me to pick up the litter on the trail and shoreline. 

This is not to single out one company because there are various amounts of litter from different local companies. One of them being the Local Dairy Queen that is located across the street from Minnehaha Falls. I have found Red Straws next to Dairy Queen cups and also the red spoons. Wildlife is affected by tossing litter and can be deadly to some of our wildlife. This is of course not Dairy Queen's fault. They have been open in this neighborhood for many years. 

However, I feel that it is part of being a good neighbor to our neighborhood and also environmentally responsible would be to switch to biodegradable Spoons, Cups, and Straws. Being so close to the park people often enjoy grabbing a frozen treat than going to the falls. Humans are messy, so littering happens. However, if we all do our part we can make a difference. And every little change adds up to a big change. 

I am asking the residents and people who care about our environment to ask that Dairy Queen goes to ecofriendly products and especially ones by local landmarks and water sources. 

Again my name is Glenn "Jase" Roe and I am a proud resident of the Hiawatha Neighborhood. 

Thank you for your time!
