  Plastic straws are ruining this planet. Straws are built up entirely of plastic, which never breaks down; it only gets smaller and smaller (until it is so small that it ends up in the air we breathe and the food we eat.) In fact, they are one of the top 10 most common items found on the beach. Which makes it no surprise that 7.5% of plastic in the environment comes from plastic straws and stirrers.

  Roughly 500 million straws are used in the USA every day, which adds up to 182.5 billion every year. According to THE LAST PLASTIC STRAW 80-90% of the Ocean is plastic debris, and by 2050 it will outweigh the fish.

   If Texas stops using straws the amount of plastic waste will decrease, and we will have cleaner waters, especially near the Gulf of Mexico. Let’s have an ocean full of life, not plastic! Please sign this petition. Even a small act such as your signature can have a big impact.
