When you order water or a drink in a restaurant or fast food place, chances are that you're gonna get a plastic single-use straw. How about that coffee you just ordered at your favorite cafe? Did you get a plastic stirrer? Just say NO!
Yes, plastic straws are sooooo convenient. You might think "ya, it's just a straw," but they cause more damage than you might imagine. Americans use an average of 1.6 straws a day (and BILLIONS of them every day around the planet). That's a lot of plastic... Which ends up in our landfills , our forests, beaches, our oceans and lakes, and well, everywhere. And not just that - those straws kill marine animals and other wildlife.
It takes 200 YEARS for ONE single plastic straw to decompose! Whaaat?
Plastic straws often contain BPAs and polypropylene which can cause cancer and other health problems. You don't want that, right? And then there's just seeing those dang straws littered all over the place. You don't want that, either. Right? Well, neither do our future humans - our kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, students, whoever.
Fortunately there are alternatives to the plastic single-use straw. Spending a few bucks on a reusable straw is the answer. Imagine pulling one out of your purse or pocket the next time you're out with friends or family at a restaurant or dinner party... You'll be a star and a hero for the planet. And future humans. And animals.
