SumOfUs is running a petition against McDonald's straws

SumOfUs, a community of more than 14 million people from around the world committed to curbing the growing power of corporations, is currently running a petition demanding McDonald's to stop handing out millions of plastic straws every single day. Used for just a few seconds, then thrown away, many of these straws end up polluting the oceans, where they may get stuck in sea turtles’ nostrils, lodged in the stomachs of baby seabirds, or end up in our food chain after being eaten by fish.
