  • To: Lynsi Snyder, President and Owner of In-N-Out Burger

    Like so many Californians, the 6th-grade students at Stevenson School love In-N-Out. They love your company's focus on fresh food but when the Seaside, CA location opened last year, they became concerned about the environmental impact of straws on the nearby Monterey Bay.

    Single use plastic straws are a huge threat to our oceans and wildlife. That’s why the students joined forced with the Last Plastic Straw to start this campaign asking In-N-Out to ditch plastic and switch to compostable straws.

    Campaign Background

    This effort was started by an elementary school class after they learned about the harm plastic causes the ocean, wildlife, and our health.

    Stevenson 6th Graders

    We use and discard over 500,000,000 plastic straws daily in the United States. That's enough straws to fill Yankee Stadium over 9 times a year. Straws are in the top 5 list of litter found on International Coastal Cleanup Day.

    Plastic does not decompose. Instead, it turns into smaller pieces that end up ingested by marine and land animals and into our food supply.

    With over 300 stores in 6 states, In-N-Out can make a big difference by swapping plastic straws for compostable paper straws.
