500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the US alone. That’s 175 billion a year filtering into landfills and littering the oceans.
Join a global movement to eliminate plastic drinking straws from our landfills, our streams, our oceans, and our beaches! The Last Plastic Straw strives to educate the public about the absurdity of single use plastic, its effects on our health, our environment, and our oceans. They aim to eliminate from the source, the use of single use plastic.
• Simply request “no straw” at bars and restaurants and share your commitment with others.
• Encourage your favorite restaurant or bar to only provide straws on request and to use biodegradable or reusable options to the plastic straw.
