We should petition for McDonalds & other fast food chain as well. They probably consumed 100x more straws worldwide.

How's about we just go back to using paper straws? It is impractical to try to ban straws for a myriad of reasons, not the least of which is health.

Thanks for your comment Timonthy! We think to solve the problem of single-use plastic non-recyclable straws entering landfills and oceans, one way is to support alternatives like paper straws. Thanks!

Please get California Pizza Kitchen on the next petition! Tell them to stop serving plastic cups with plastic lids and plastic straws to every single kid that eats there. Disgrace to Mother Earth!

Great idea! We decided to start with Applebee's as they are the largest sit-down restaurant chain in the nation. We hope with your great support, and others who have signed the petition, we can reach large sit-down chains like California Pizza Kitchen!

Say no to straws, unless you are disabled. We want to reduce carbon footprint as well, so no to biodegradeable straw as well !!!

I don't think it should be hard for people (other than disabled or elderly) to give up drinking with a straw at a Restauraunt or bar. I think the trouble will be for all the cold "to go" beverages from places like Starbucks, fast food joints and specialty drink places like Bubble Tea, Booster Juice and Orange Julius etc etc..... It would be much harder to do away with straws from these places, especially if you are on the go, walking or driving somewhere.

Yes, real straws and perhaps it could give income to less developed nations who produce them.

why just target Applebees? All restaurants and fast food places should be targeted for this!
