Guzman Y Gomez: Change your plastic straws to paper or bamboo!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Plastic straws are an unnecessary convenience with a big impact.

500 MILLION straws are used every single day. That straw you threw away after drinking your drink will outlive you and everyone else on this planet. 

These disposable straws are made from plastic that never breaks down and will separate into smaller pieces, but will never completely biodegrade. Plastic straws are actually the top ten items picked up on beach clean ups. All these plastic straws are polluting our oceans and having a negative impact on marine life. Straws are especially dangerous to seabirds, as they can be easily picked up and swallowed, suffocating and choking the bird. In fact, over 1 million seabirds die each year from ingesting plastic. 

We're asking Guzman Y Gomez to switch their plastic straws to paper or bamboo for the sake of our environment.
