Replace Plastic Straws with Paper at all Disney Resort Properties

In only the past twenty years, people have come to expect straws in every drink they order - an extreme waste generated for minimal convenience. Nearly 500,000,000 plastic straws are used every day in the United States which lead over 50 million non-recyclable plastic shipped off to landfills - much of which finds its way to the ocean.
In the game of straws, Mother Earth is drawing the short one. With plastics at the core of ocean pollution like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (currently larger than the state of Texas), continuing the use of single-use plastics should scare all of us.
Disney's Animal Kingdom has shown that an alternative to plastic straws is possible on a large scale. With such a huge positive step at one park, we hope to encourage Disney to take paper straws to all park and resorts globally.
