Pictures tell a story and this photo below is no exception. Plastic is polluting our waters and if we don't start to make drastic changes, this will only get worse. The focus of this article is plastic straws however straws are just one item of the 800 million tons of plastic that arrives in our waterways each year. Do your part, quit straws.
Of the eight million tons of plastic trash that flow every year into the world’s oceans, the plastic drinking straw is surely not a top contributor to all that tonnage.
Yet this small, slender tube, utterly unnecessary for most beverage consumption, is at the center of a growing environmental campaign aimed at convincing people to stop using straws to help save the oceans.
