While not all plastic is *bad*, mindless, privileged single use plastic is detrimental to the environment. Full stop. Plastic straws are in that category. Removal of automatic straw inclusion with served meals would go a long way toward a good gesture by businesses who say they are listening to consumer ideals and voices. Bring your own, paper ones or just plain drinking all work well as alternatives, (leaving plastic for the necessary situations). Of all the things a government can do that is a small gesture with a huge impact, this is it. Don't wait to legislate. We've waited SO LONG. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and help in this matter!

COVID-19 lives 3 days on plastic. Artificial turf is plastic. It is potentially a high transfer point for COVID-19 that will infect players, their families, and the players and families from visiting teams. Please also sign my petition asking the United States Consumer Product Safety Commision to ban all artificial turf installations and replacements until solutions are found to stop COVID-19 and it is somewhat "controlled". Please find and sign it now to help save some lives. Also, go to ConsumerProductSafetyCommision.gov and file a complaint against the product. I've done 14 months of research on the dangers. If you need fire, heat, infection or injury information please email me at sstewartsaunders@gmail.com Thank you

I agree with you and I made a similar one on banning plastic bags if you search up my name (catalina marques) it will come up. I love the fact that your sending it to starbucks because I simply just love all they're drinks and combinations but every time I feel guilty with the plastic cup and straw that I throw away. I'll send this petition to all my friends so they can sign to.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I agree with this. Please do not give out straws in restaurants for people who do not need them.
