Ban disposable plastic straws in Spokane WA

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

As a server, I witness people every day ask for a plastic straw or utensil that will end up in a landfill or water way. It sickens me to watch videos of animals harmed or killed by something I used to convenience my, already comfortable, lifestyle. Hundreds of straws are disposed of by my hand alone each week as a person in the restaurant business. An estimated quarter BILLION straws are thrown away each DAY in the U.S. alone. Spokane, let's continue to lead ourselves and our children into a future with a sustainable environment. The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful regions in the country, let's keep it that way. Sign this petition Spokane and let's join our sister city, Seattle in their new ban on single use plastics. This petition will be sent to our three County Comissioners Mary Kuney, Al French, and Josh Kerns. The more signatures the louder our voice. We can make a difference so quickly.
