Why are the straws around the world a global crisis? Something that affects us all. This product has been designed and meant to be thrown away after a few minutes of it's use. But even if you throw it away, it's never going to go away. We have build this culture around throwaway prospects, just you do one time and then throw it away. Less than 10% of the plastic waste in the world are recycled. They end up in the landfills. They end up in our oceans. Of the 32 million tons of plastic waste produced a year 8 millions tons constitute the ocean. That's equal to 5 shopping bags filled with garbage for every foot of coastline.
Straws cannot be recycled. One straw stays in the environment for over 200 years. And you use that for may be five or ten minutes. Everyday there are straws used enough to wrap around the entire planet twice. These straws eaten by fish reach our body as micro plastic wastes. Every time you suck out of a plastic straw you are sucking the life out of our oceans.
We must change now and act now to change. If enough people say no to plastic straws, companies will stop serving them in everything from your coke to your caipirinha. And that’s great news for the oceans, and all marine life from tiny sea crabs to the great whales. Next time you’re at a bar, ask for your drink without a straw or keep a reusable one on hand.
So if straws stay in the environment forever, use straws that will stay with you forever. Either be bold, use no straw and stop sucking, or use the same straw for life.
