Disney Cruise Line, Plastic Straws Pollute Our Oceans. Stop Using Them on Your Ships!

These days, you are much more likely to find plastic on the beach than a message in a bottle.

Plastic is clogging our oceans at an alarming rate. In fact, the problem is so big that according to some studies, by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Many plastic products like the plastic straw — a largely unnecessary drink accessory — are used just once before they are sent to the dumps or end up in our seas.

But more and more, companies are trying to do something to cut down on plastic waste. After Carnival, P&O Cruises, and Cunard all banned plastic straws, Royal Caribbean did the same. The cruise line became the latest company to say #strawssuck. The company has pledged to be plastic straw free by the end of the year. Additionally, they will also stop using other plastic items such as bags, cups and condiment packets by 2019.

Now that nearly all of the major cruise lines have decided to say "bon voyage" to single-use plastic items, those of us that are concerned with our environment are asking, when will Disney Cruise Line (DCL) do the same?

Small steps made by many companies can have a big impact. When market leaders decide to take a stand against plastic it can help encourage others in the industry to do the same. In order to tackle plastic pollution, we must all play our part. It's time for DCL to play theirs.

Please sign the petition and ask Disney Cruise Lines to stop using plastic straws and other single-use plastic items on their cruises.
