How to Save Sea Turtles by Using Reusable Drinking Straws
"Straws are consistently on the top 10 lists for marine debris collected every year during the International Coastal Cleanup. It is estimated that Americans use a whopping 500 million straws per day – a number that, end-to-end, could circle the planet 2.5 times. Now imagine this number compounded on a global scale" (data reported by Sailors for the Sea).
Unfortunately, marine animals like sea turtles are the main victims of human activity. Plastic drinking straws are not recyclable and most of times they end up in the Ocean. Sea turtles then consume these drinking straws by accident and they die. You might be wondering 'why do we even need drinking straws?'. Well, firstly, there are many people with skin conditions (e.g. eczema) and because of those conditions they have to use drinking straws so that their condition doesn't aggravate. On the other side, we all should be free to make choices and if we like to use a special tool (drinking straw) to drink a liquid, we should be free to make that decision. Nevertheless, we need to understand that there are plenty of alternatives to plastic drinking straws and that if we make the right choice we can help saving not only sea turtles but also our environment.
Single-use plastic consumption has been a big environmental issue for decades and the reason why is because we use a piece of plastic for a single-use and its full decomposition takes thousands of years to occur. Moreover, a big amount of plastic waste ends up in the ocean - there are currently 150 Million metric tons of plastic circulating our oceans.
However, there's a solution for this problem. What if instead of using a disposable plastic straw, we simply use a reusable stainless steel sexy straw that would last at least a few years?
