Grabbing a plastic straw when taking a drink on the go feels automatic, but it can have negative impacts on the environment, especially in the oceans since Americans use 500 million plastic straws every single day. Many of these straws then wind up in waterways and can harm marine animals, like this sea turtle in Costa Rica.
Ditching the straw shows just how simple it is to lessen our environmental footprint. After a week or two of consciously deciding to not use a straw, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make the change!
