Lauren H started this petition to UK Parliament and

Recently a limited number of fast food chains have started providing customers with paper straws instead of  plastic ones. This is because plastic straws are made from single use plastic which is not recyclable so just ends up being dumped into the ocean. Although there there has been some change, places like Burger King and Subway still use plastic straws which needs to be changed. 

Although the government has said they are going to ban the use of plastic straws, it isn’t quite clear of when this will happen, which needs to change rapidly. This is one of many factors which is contributing to climate change, which is why each step is so necessary to get earth to the condition it needs to be in.

 It has been quite clear by many people throughout social media that scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn around this environmental crisis, to ensure there is no problems  in the future, if not it  will cause further damage to our earth and the species who live on it. 

There are alternatives to plastic straws. For example stainless-steel straws which can be reused as many times so reduces the amount of plastic waste.  Also I think people need to be educated on the problems of using such items, instead of thinking of the convenience of them.  

Please sign this petition to ensure that the use of unneeded plastic straws are stopped because honestly, do we still need to use them?

thankyou.
