Why are straws so damaging to the marine environment?
Disposable straws are usually made from plastic and plastic never breaks down. As time goes by plastic will separate into smaller and smaller pieces, but never completely biodegrades.
If you like slurping a smoothie through a straw that is totally ok! There are plenty of alternatives to disposable plastic straws available. Using one of our stainless steel straws is a fantastic alternative to using plastic straws.
