Our sea animals our being killed by throw away plastic. And in a research study, by 2050 there will be more plastic than animals in the sea. Animals eat plastic and they get sick. And instead of the plastic break down it turns into microplastics.

99% of plastic pollution in the sea causes climate change. Cigarettes do not just pollute the air, the butts can make their way into the ocean and reek havoc on the plants and animals in the sea.

We also eat mircroplastics, it is in our food, our bevarages, and sometimes the oxygen we breathe. We eat plastic, (1/4 of fish we eat have microplastics in their gut) and we drink plastic, (82% of tap water in our state has mircroplastics in it)

500,000,000 straws are thrown away each day (that is about 125,000,000,000 plastic straws every year) just in the US alone, continually ending up in our oceans and on the beaches. Some people say that they do not contribute to this pollution because they do not dump their plastic into the sea.

Although you may not directly dump your plastic straws right into the sea, your plastic waste does end up in the sea when your plastic gets to the landfill. This constant dumping of plastic into our waterways is rapidly destroying the aquatic life in the sea

Sign this petition so all of us can stop plastic pollution

Switch to metal straws, plant straws, or just sip your drink
