Plastic straws are slowly but surely damaging the environment. Many animals are in danger because of this, including sea turtles. For an example, sea turtles get the plastic straw lodged in their nostril, and their breathing becomes affected. Unlike paper straws, plastic straws take around 500 years to decompose. Several people have bought metal straws to cut down on straw use across the world, although many people are unaware of the dangers that come with plastic straws. If this petition could get enough signatures, we could begin to achieve the ultimate goal of trying to ban plastic straws across the world, one state at a time. Each person makes a difference.
