Daniel Isola started this petition to The Mayor of Vero Beach

The plastic straws used by many restaurants and stores are destroying our beaches and marine ecosystems.  There is an estimated 500 million straws used each and every day and there are an estimated 8.3 BILLION straws floating in our waters today. plastic straws are a danger to the ocean and our wildlife because they are made of type 5 plastic. Type 5 plastic cannot be recycled  and will eventually be broken down into smaller pieces. These fragments of plastic are then consumed by animals mistaking it for food. We want to make it so that the restaurants can only distribute plastic straws by request.
