Conserve Waste and STOP Straw Usage
This petition had 2,203 supporters
500 million straws are used every day in the United States. Instead of automatically providing them in large franchises such as McDonald's and Starbucks, have them be provided only if asked for--this can make a drastic change. Most marine debris, for example, comes from plastic. The US alone creates about 30% of the world's waste while the US population is less than 5% of the world.
In addition to making them optional, the provided straws should be biodegradable or more easily recyclable.
