Stop Plastic Straws

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Hi, our names are Kennedy, Colton, and Rakim, we are fifth graders for Junction City Oregon and we would like to make a difference. We are proposing that McDonald's should stop using plastic straws. We have noticed that plastic straws are not thrown away and don't decompose for 450- 1,000 years! That is according to 4ocean.com 

According to Recyclebank.com plastic straws came in 1960's and if they aren't thrown away some have't even decomposed yet. It has been studied that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish , but we cant fix that we all stop using plastic but just changing one would help. In the UK 8.5 billion straws are used in one year and McDonald's have noticed and they have stopped using plastic straws and are working on non plastic lids we would like to be like them (metro.com.uk). 

We noticed that this problem affects us, our community, our country, and the whole world. The video shows that the turtle has got a straw up his nostril and is in pain.

Please help us stop plastic straws at McDonald's and sign this petition to help our community and our world.
