THANK Dunkin' Donuts for eliminating foam cups!
This petition had 1,432 supporters
Like me, are you tired of signing petitions for what you don't want? Then take a moment to sign this one, and say thank you to Dunkin' Donuts for working toward a future we do want... a future without Styrofoam (expanded polystyrene foam) waste!
Dunkin' Donuts announced yesterday (2/7/18) they will begin replacing their ubiquitous foam cup with a new double-walled paper cup (see photo above) in the US this spring, and promise to eliminate foam cups worldwide in 2020. https://news.dunkindonuts.com/news/dunkin-donuts-to-eliminate-foam-cups-worldwide-in-2020
I stopped drinking Dunkin' Donuts coffee (which I love) due to their foam cups; I look forward to again buying Dunkin' Donuts coffee at my local Leonia, NJ shop -- in a new paper cup as soon as the foam cups are gone! I choose where I spend my consumer dollar, and I want the leadership team at Dunkin' Donuts to know that their actions and policies to protect the environment and work toward sustainability are important to me. It is important to all of us*, to the children in our lives, to future generations.
Join me in signing this petition. And since big businesses seem to have more sway these days than the common sense majority, also join me in asking the Dunkin' Donuts Leadership Team to share their example of corporate responsibility and to apply their influence in support of Environmental Protection and Sustainability policies at federal and international levels.
If they do this, I'll buy Dunkin' Donuts coffees for everyone at my local Leonia, NJ shop!
*When the Leonia Action Alliance, a grassroots community group, worked toward making my small New Jersey town Styrofoam-Free, it identified these Top 5 Reasons to Eliminate Styrofoam:
1) Health Hazard (contains neurotoxins)
2) Environmental Hazard (manufacturing produces hazardous waste)
3) Not really recyclable (difficult and expensive to reprocess - not recycled in my town)
4) Not Biodegradable (Styrofoam ends up in landfill and lasts forever)
5) Pollutes rivers and oceans; Kills fish and wildlife
