Join Sundays with Victoria and Grom Social and pledge to go strawless, because even little changes can make big difference.
Single-use plastic straws have become a major environmental issue as they do not break down and are not compostable or recyclable. Plastic straws can make their way into the waterways and end up in the ocean creating a toxic mess and danger for all the animals that call it home and the people who enjoy it. An estimated 500 million (half a billion) plastic straws are thrown away each day in the U.S. alone. That means 182,500,000,000 straws per year go into the landfills, streams, lakes, and oceans!
Not all people can go strawless, especially those with disabilities, but choosing to switch to an eco-friendly alternative in your daily life will help to make you part of the solution, reducing pollution at its source! Together we can make a difference.
What can you do:
Don’t use single-use plastic straws
Find and use reusable straw alternatives at home or on the go
Talk to others about going strawless.
Support organizations that are trying to make a difference like Lonely Whale.
Ready to make a difference? Silicone straws are great for kids as they are soft flexible and stainless straws are awesome because they almost chill your drink as it is sucked through!
