Group Set to Present Petition for Whataburger to Stop Using Foam Cups
AUSTIN, TX-- Eco activists are prepared to ask beloved Texas restaurant Whataburger to get rid of plastic cups in lieu of a more environmentally friendly alternative, according to a report from CBS Austin.
On Monday, a coalition of "several groups" will present a petition to the popular fast food chain asking them to cease use of foam cups. Their ground for this petition is that the foam "ends up in rivers, lakes, and oceans where it can kill wildlife," according to CBS Austin's report.
Copies of the petition, which reportedly has 50,000 signatures, will be distributed at the San Antonio-based headquarters.
The petition will also be distributed to select restaurants in Austin and Corpus Christi, where Whataburger was founded.
