Ban Straws in Michigan!
Every day, we use about 500,000,000 (five hundred million) plastic straws which results in 182,500,000,000 (one hundred eighty two billion, five hundred million) plastic straws used every single year. Plastic alone kills up to 100,000,000 (one hundred million) marine animals annually and straws contribute quite a bit to that. Sign this petition to help ban plastic straws in Michigan!
Some other options for straws are purchasing compostable ones or stainless steel ones. They don't give your drink a funny taste, and most metal ones online come with a small brush to clean them! They're both inexpensive and a happier, healthier way to make the planet a better place for everyone.
