IT’S ONLY ONE STRAW…SAID 8 BILLION PEOPLE

Colorants, plasticizers (which make the plastic more flexible), antioxidants (which reduce the interactions between oxygen and the plastic), and ultraviolet light filters (which shield the plastic from solar radiation) are added.

Straws are then individually wrapped in sleeves or bulk-packed in plastic or cardboard containers.

A SMALL STRAW’S BIG ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: IT IS USED FEW SECONDS, IT SINKS FOR OVER 500 YEARS.

It is the most tangible symbol of our waste culture. An item that used for few seconds, is dumped right away ending up in the ocean by wind and rain, into our drainage networks or rivers.

Yes, some people need a straw! Anyone who has had a stroke, has autism, MS or other life changing physical issue needs a straw and often a compostable straw works best. I have those available, get in touch.
