Reusable straws are the future. You don't have to be an oceanographer to understand that having a floating plastic garbage dump the size of the State of Texas in the Pacific is a bad thing. Likewise, your life doesn't have to revolve around environmentalism to know that the disposal of an estimated 500 million plastic straws every day is only adding to the problem.
The fact is that we can't open a browser, or watch the news these days, without discovering something new about the harm our collective actions are causing to the natural world. It has most of us wondering how we can begin to lessen our impact on the planet and still live an active and normal life.
As individual consumers, we may not have the immediate power to control everything. But there are a lot of little things that we can do ourselves, right now, as consumers to begin to inch toward a plastic free life. One is to try and purchase fresh food products that are not unnecessarily plastic wrapped. For instance, we can pass on that plastic wrapped apple. When we leave the store, we can take our stuff in reusable bags. And we can easily and painlessly wean ourselves off of the 500 million plastic straws we use every day by carrying reusable straws.
Think about it. Every single day in America alone, consumers use enough single use disposable straws to circumnavigate the entire planet two and a half times. Each and every day this happens. That is an estimated 3 million pounds of completely unnecessary plastics that we can stop using right now and keep out of our oceans and landfills.
By simply carrying a tiny and attractive kit from Sandstraw, you can painlessly and affordably do your part toward saving the planet and creating a better, more sustainable tomorrow. What's more, every purchase benefits the sea animal of your choice. This is your opportunity, your chance, to start doing something easy that will have a tremendous impact on our future.
