Well said! Straws are used for only one drink, yet they stay in our landfills and environment for many years.

CRUCIAL to solving this problem is to stop using straws. Talk about a completely unnecessary invention that does nothing but cause harm to marine life etc.

Drinking from straws gives you mouth wrinkles. If you don't have any concern for environmental issues, hopefully you are still vain enough to not ask for a straw at Applebee's when the policy is passed.

It never occurred to me, until I read Causes that plastic straws littered our environment like that! I hardly ever use a straw, don't think about where do they go. There must be plenty of rubbish that I don't think about. It does prove to me, that every day brings a revelation!

It is a paradox that for the whole life one does so many things for his children, but never cares to protect the environment which the same children are going to inherit.

This is a great point. I think the same thing. Why don't we do a better job of protecting the earth for our children?

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!
