Why Straws Seriously Suck
As we go about our day, most of us don’t think about the impact of that straw we used for our morning cold brew, lunch time’s smoothie, or evening refreshment. The problem is, those small straws add up – in the USA alone, 390 million plastic straws are used each day. That’s enough straws to circle around Earth over 2 times. Like other single use plastics, they never biodegrade and take centuries to break down. Plastic straws are ending up in our oceans by the thousands.
Pollution in Full Effect
Whenever there is an ocean coastline cleanup, plastic straws never fail to make it on the most found ocean litter list. 2018 data from Ocean Conservancy’s TIDES systems shows that straws are the 11th most found ocean trash in cleanups. It’s not hard to see why – scuba diver Kasey Turner went snorkeling recently at a popular dive site in Manly, Australia. Within a 20 minute snorkel, she found 319 straws. 24 hours later, she went back and found another 294 in the same place.
The Last Straw
All these straws and plastics polluting our oceans have a negative impact on marine life. Plastic straws are particularly dangerous to animals because they break down into small pieces that can be ingested. Over 100 million marine animals are killed every year and 700 marine species are threatened due to plastic pollution. It is in our position to make daily changes through our actions to preserve the environment and coexisting life, and to give hope for future generations.
