When you think about the scale of plastic pollution, straws might seem so insignificant at first, but did you know?

  • Over 500 Million plastic straws are used and thrown away every day.
  • Plastic takes about 450 years to break down in landfill.
  • If it doesn’t go there, it ends up in the ocean where it is ingested by sea life and leaks toxic waste into our water.
  • Plastic doesn’t go away when you throw it out.

YOU can help to change this by;
1. Remember to request no straw when ordering a drink
2. Invest in one of the many great plastic straw alternatives, like these from SiliStraw
(They are a great conversation starter too, to help spread the word about avoiding plastic)

I’ve joined in on the #thelaststraw movement and bought my boys a SiliStraw from SiliStrawOfficial
