Among the top 10 items found in the ocean are plastic straws and stirrers. Most recycling facilities don’t process the type of plastic used in plastic straws, which means most end up either in landfill or washed down storm-water drains and into the ocean when not properly disposed of.
To put that in perspective: over 10 million plastic straws are used in Australia every single day and take approximately 200 years to break down.
An eco friendly alternative is Reusable stainless steel straws. This listing is for 1x straw. Different size options available.
