WAWA: Please reduce your plastic waste. No more plastic coffee stirrers!

Wawa please stop supplying your customers with single use plastic coffee stirrers. 30 seconds of stirring becomes forever in a landfill or the ocean!

Plastic is choking the environment, literally. Currently, there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean, and it is predicted that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish. That means when my son is a just a little older than I am now he'll have to use a pool skimmer at the beach if he wants to swim in the ocean. 

WAWA boasts on their napkins that they are "saving the environment, one napkin at a time", because they are made from recycled material. I can appreciate that, but what would help more is to do away with your plastic coffee stirrers. 

Anyone who knows this company knows that they sell a lot of coffee and it isn't ridiculous to see people use 2, 3 and 4 of these little plastic stirrers at a time. There are alternatives available. Please stop handing out plastic that will just end up in a landfill or even worse, the ocean! You're a family owned business with some values, I assume. Do your part. These pieces of plastic will still be here long after we are gone, long after our children are gone, etc. Raise my coffee price $0.10 a cup if you have to. That's a small price to pay if it will lessen your environmental impact. NO MORE PLASTIC COFFEE STIRRERS! Please, thank you.
