Get rid on the waste of time paper straws.

Why is this important?

So I can drink my milkshake proper

This petition has been started by a member of the public and not 38 Degrees. Single use "throw away" plastic items like straws, cups and bottles have a huge impact on our environment, they clog up our oceans and polluting our countryside.

Reasons for signing

  • Paper straws are rough in the mouth, they go soggy in the mouth and where it interfaces with the lid. You cannot prod the straw around the bottom of the cup in milkshakes or between the ice in other drinks without the straw bending and mushing up. We should be saving paper as deforestation fuels climate change. Plastic straws don't end up in the sea unless they are taken to the beach.
  • So I can drink my drink proper
  • As someone with autism, the paper straws cause issue for me having them in my mouth. I currently have some plastic straws I have to use on the occasions where I have a McDonalds milkshake so I am able to drink them.
