Can you imagine a world without plastic?
Without even noticing you have used at least 6 single use plastics before leaving the house in the morning (tooth brush, toothpaste, flannel, facial wash, milk bottle, cereal)
Can you go a week without purchase something with plastic in?
Yes, it is doable but you have to shop around and shop local. But you can do this and lower the amount of plastic you dispose in your household, and reduce your carbon footprint. But there are many more benefits to switching to reusable straws than just environmental.
Here are my Favourite top reasons to make the switch to reusable straws that you simply cannot ignore:
Better for the Environment - Many disposable plastic straws are made from polypropylene - a thermoplastic polymer which is made from the same stuff that powers our cars. That's right, much of the plastic straws that are used every day are made from fossil fuels!
Disposable plastic straws are TOXIC Plastic drinking straws can contain harmful toxins that can be detrimental to your health and the health of your family, including Phthalates and Bisphenol A. But this can be sorted by using reusable stainless steel straws
Better for the Ocean. Did you know that disposable plastic straws are one of the top 10 most common items of trash found in the ocean and on our beaches? With over 500 million plastic straws being used every day. By switching to using reusable straws we can drastically reduce the amount of disposable straws that are made, used and then thrown away.
It all starts with YOU! Be the change the next generation needs today. And do not forget #ThinkingGlobalActingLocal is the now and forever!
