Stop the use of plastic straws and lids at Disney World
Brayden Bittel started this petition to Walt Disney and 1 other
My name is Brayden and I am 10 years old. I recently visited Disney World. I love the way Animal Kingdom is trying to save the environment. For example, not using straws and plastic lids. However, at the other Disney parks every restaurant I visited had straws and plastic lids. When I have done beach clean ups the number one thing I have picked up are plastic straws so I have seen what an impact they make on our environment first hand. If a huge park like Disney World would stop distributing an extremely harmful product I know it would make a difference. I read:
Straws are one of the top 10 things picked up at beach clean ups.
Every day, 500 million straws are used in the US. Most of them are only used for about 20 minutes. This is enough straws to circle around the Earth 2 times.
It takes 200 years for a single plastic straw to decompose.
Each year one million sea birds and 100,000 marine animals die from eating plastic.
I believe if the Disney company would stop distributing plastic straws and lids at all Disney parks, not just Animal Kingdom, they could help make a bigger impact on our environment.
