My name is Annelie Miller, and I am 17 years-old. Since 5th grade I have been trying to promote awareness about the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans through school art projects, fundraisers and working with my city council to try and eliminate plastic straws in our town.

Now I think it’s time to aim bigger. I’m asking In-N-Out Burger, one of California’s most beloved fast-food chains, to stop using plastic straws.

My friends and I have enjoyed eating at In-N-Out for years and are frequent customers who would love to see the restaurant become environmentally conscious. In-N-Out has has developed a reputation as a company which cares about its workers and puts special emphasis on the freshness and quality of their food. It seems fitting therefore that they would want to be on the forefront of this movement to reduce plastic waste.

As I am sure you are quite aware, the problem of plastic pollution is ever increasing. Over 500 million straws are used and discarded every single day, most of which end up in the stomachs of sea creatures. Plastic straws do not biodegrade. They just break down into tiny micro plastics which never disappear.

Raise your voice for the environment today by  asking In-N-Out Burger to eliminate plastic straws from their stores.

By encouraging this unique chain to go plastic free, hopefully others will follow on this quest to eliminate single use plastic once and for all. Thank you!
