Hello, my name is Abigail, I am 16 years old and I live in Montevideo. Nowadays, there is an awareness of the environment as well as the damage caused by human beings.

On this occasion, I am creating this petition so that plastic straws are banned in my city, I would expect that a pioneer country like Uruguay in so many other disciplines, will also be in this subject.

This everyday object has few minutes of use but takes approximately 500 years to decompose, causing serious damage to ecosystems: between 40-60% of sea turtles ingest plastic; More than 1,000,000 birds and more than 100,000 marine mammals die each year as a result of the plastic that reaches the sea.

In our life, in most cases, straws are not necessary. That is why most of the world is acting accordingly regulating the prohibition of their use.

Please, sign for the Ministry of Environment to implement this idea, making Montevideo cleaner and more eco-friendly.

I'm going to take care of our environment; will you?
