“Straws on Request” Bill
Plastic is in every part of the ocean, threatening marine wildlife from seabirds to turtles. The equivalent of a garbage truck full of plastic ends up in the ocean every minute—and if we don’t make changes now, that rate will double by 2025.
The good news is, we can do something about it! In California, the Straws On Request bill (AB 1884) would give us the choice to skip the straws we don’t need.
Through this bill, dine-in restaurants across the state would provide straws only to people who ask for them—reducing the number of disposable plastic straws used in California, and slowing the flow of plastic from land to sea.
Please urge your California legislators to support the Straws On Request bill. Send your letter to your representative here.
