Whataburger, stop using polystyrene foam cups!

Polystyrene (commonly known as Styrofoam) is one of the worst and most common types of plastic, but Whataburger still uses it. About one third of foam cups end up in our environment, especially our rivers, lakes, and oceans.

For a bird or fish or turtle, it's easy to mistake a small piece of polystyrene for food. When animals ingest plastic waste, it can block their digestive tracts. As a result, they starve.

Whataburger says they're investigating alternatives, but they need to hear from customers that we want them to act now. If they don't, what a waste.
