BE A COMPASSIONATE CONSUMER BY SAYING NO TO STRAWS!!!
Have you thought about how many straws we waste in the UNITED STATES alone?
Well if you are wondering, it is a shocking 500 MILLION STRAWS A DAY!!!
Unfortunately, many of these straws wind up on the street and on our beaches then of course in our oceans only left to breakdown into small pieces which are then consumed by fish and sea birds.
Plastic pollution in our oceans harms sea life in many ways.
You can read the full story on PLASTICPOLLUTION.COM about the famous SEA TURTLE who had a plastic straw stuck in his nostril. Fortunately, he was saved but imagine how many other creatures who aren’t as fortunate as him.
