Ban Plastic Straws Throughout Lynn Univ.
Living on the coast of Florida and still using single use plastic straws that fill landfills, pollute the ocean and endanger marine life, it is crucial that we take initiative in leading the way to change. In recent studies it is that that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. Not to mention, micro plastics are toxic to the fish in which we humans consume. One of the top 10 items found in the ocean are plastic straws which can take hundreds of years to break down. I am so appreciative to go to Lynn University. A school in which is already very eco-friendly, and cares so deeply about the well being of its students, staff, and the environment. So many other school have banned single use plastic straws from their campus, and I want to be one of those school doing better and setting an example for the rest. Help me collect my goal of signatures in order to show my school we can do better, taking the step to reduce our impact on the environment by eliminating single-use plastic straws in the dinning hall and coffee shops.Thank you!
Even if you don’t go to Lynn University,
There is no excuse for single use: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse.
