To: Town Of Westport

Ban The Distribution, Sale, Use Of Plastic Staws, Stirrers and Polystyrene Foam Cups And Containers

These nonbiodegradable single-use products when discarded improperly pollute and cause great damage and harm to ecosystems and our natural environment. The replacement would be biodegradable and recyclable materials such as cardboard, paper, bamboo, wheat/gluten noodle, and stainless steel.

Why is this important?

The purpose of this petition is to battle the plastic crisis from which our world is currently suffering. These products when disposed of improperly and recklessly can cause great harm to plant/sea life. All plastics are petroleum based and nonbiodegradable. The immediate implementation of biodegradable and environmentally friendly products just in our community will bring every other town to follow us.
