What’s wrong with plastic straws?
- Straws are the 11th most common plastic found at sea and billions are used each year.
- It takes each plastic straw hundreds of years to biodegrade. During this time, they are a dangerous hazard to marine life.
- 1 million sea birds die each year from ingesting plastic!
- Though the straws biodegrade, they never fully degrade. The plastic just breaks up into smaller pieces – microplastics.
- Tiny organisms can ingest even the smallest microplastics. These small organisms are often at the bottom of the food chain. This is why plastic is found in so many fish.
How do I clean a metal straw?
- Wash the steel straw in hot water with soap and use the cleaning brush to clean the inside.
- Alternatively, you can put the steel straw in the dishwasher.
How will my purchase make a difference?
