Petition Closed

Every day, tens of millions of plastic straws are thoughtlessly tossed in drinks across the country, only to be thrown out and wind up in landfills. It's a blatant waste of resources, adds money to the coffers of big oil, and uses up the scarce resource that is our planet.

Please, join me in saying NO to straws. Don't suck!

Letter to
Your Mayor
Dear Mayor,

Do you know how much resource is wasted every year on drinking straws? From oil drilling and refining to manufacturing, packaging, and distribution? And all to be used or not for a brief moment before they are again tossed in the trash and transported again to landfills.

Please, take a stand, ban drinking straws. Join us, and don't suck!
