Many of those straws end up in the oceans, along with millions of tons of other plastics – all of it causing major problems for sea life.
You’ve probably seen pictures of sea turtles and fish getting caught up in plastic refuse.
Those images have spawned countless campaigns to go straw-free.
In the United States, several cities and states have either banned plastic straws or are considering legislation to do so, and other countries are also joining in.
Switching to paper or stainless-steel straws, or skipping the straw all together, takes some getting used to but it’s so worth it … it’s just one small step we all can take to help care for our oceans and the planet!
This week, let’s skip the straws! Upgrade to paper or stainless steel straws… or skip them!
Snap a photo of your strawless beverage and share it with us. :)
