The Last Straw

Millions streamed the viral video of the sea turtle undergoing an eight-minute straw extraction from its nostril in 2015, yet each day in America, 500 million straws are used and discarded.

It’s time to stop using straws.

It’s time we admit as a nation that straws are unnecessary, and they’re not harmless. It’s time we make a small change that will have a hugely positive ripple effect.

Studies show that the amount of plastic trash in our oceans could potentially outweigh the sealife, as soon as 2050. That’s a lot of Plastic Straws, utensils, and more, which could have been recycled.

Did you know that many American states and several countries have completely banned the use of plastic straws, cutlery, and bags? This issue is vitally important to the wellbeing of our planet, and yet we still get straws in our waters, juices, sodas, and cocktails.

“No straw, please.” It’s that simple.
