Surfrider Foundation Winning Multiple Plastic Straw Ban Victories in Broward

Surfrider Foundation seeks to decrease the use of single use plastics, as they are made from fossil fuels and do not biodegrade.  Often times, these plastics end up in the ocean where they photo-degrade into smaller pieces, and enter our food chain.  Plastics also harm our endangered marine life, such as sea turtles.  One of Surfrider Foundation Broward County's campaigns is to pass as many plastic straw ordinances as possible, as straws are over-used, not recyclable, and often end up in our environment.
