500 MILLION PLASTIC STRAWS ARE USED EVERY DAY IN THE US—ENOUGH TO ENCIRCLE THE EARTH 2.5 TIMES!!
Straws are not a necessity for most and in order to help save marine life we need to make an effort to reduce straw usage.
Alternatives are to either just say "NO" to straws or another alternative is purchasing a reusable aluminum straw to keep on you if you really feel that you need a straw to drink your beverage.
Thank you so much for thinking of the health of our water planet and the future of our existence. It is up to us to cause change. Just a little bit of effort can have such an effect on our environment.
