No More Plastic Straws!


Plastic straws are bad for the planet for so many reasons; they're non-biodegradable, single-use, harmful to wildlife, pollution and deplete resources.

It's important to consider sustainable alternatives, like reusable metal, glass or straws made with natural materials, to reduce the negative impact of plastic straws on the environment.

Plastic straws are made from petroleum-based plastics, which are non-biodegradable. This means that they don't break down naturally and can take hundreds of years to decompose. So... they accumulate in landfills and oceans, contributing to pollution and endangering wildlife.

Most plastic straws are designed for single-use and are discarded after a single use. This creates a significant amount of waste that is difficult to manage and can harm the environment. And even those plastic straws that can be reused will eventually end up in the landfill. So, please... no more plastic straws.

Plastic straws can pose a significant threat to wildlife. Marine animals can mistake them for food and ingest them, which can lead to injury or death. Straws can also become entangled in wildlife, causing harm or restricting movement. They are also one of the most common types of litter found on beaches and in oceans, polluting the environment and harming wildlife. And, as if that isn't bad enough, they can also contribute to air pollution when they are incinerated.

When plastic straws are produced, it requires the use of fossil fuels, which contribute to climate change and environmental degradation. Overall, plastic straws are bad for the planet due to their non-biodegradability, single-use nature, harm to wildlife, pollution and resource depletion. Please consider sustainable alternatives and let's all take these important steps (although small) and help our environment thrive.
