Tell our governor to support a ban on plastic straws

Plastic straws are convenient, but are they worth the cost?

Tragic examples of the toll single-use plastic waste takes on animals and our environment have made front page news in recent months, from the whale that washed up on a beach in Spain with 64 pounds of plastic lodged in its stomach to a hard-to-watch video of scientists pulling a plastic straw out of a sea turtle's nose.

And still, we're making the problem worse: We throw away an estimated 175 million plastic straws every single day here in the U.S.

Ask our governor to choose wildlife over waste and support a statewide ban on plastic straws.
