The plastic straws in the ocean are very harmful to the marine life. The plastic straws are very dangerous because are made of a hard plastic that can easily work as a sharp object- type weapon.
Were you aware that more than 500,000,000 plastic straws are being used every single day in the United States?
In the last years, people come to expect a straw in every single drink they buy, do you relate to this? When you go to a McDonalds, to Starbucks or any other fast food chains you expect a straw on every drink and you get angry if they forget to include it …
This has to change! These short-living tools are usually dumped into the trash can with no further thought, instantly becoming a source of plastic pollution.
Have you seen the video of a marine turtle with a plastic straw stuck to her nose?
