Why It’s the Last (Plastic Drinking) Straw
Eco alternatives to single-use plastic
Single-use plastic straws really do suck. These plastic drinking straws end up in the world’s oceans causing havoc to marine wildlife, the biodiversity of our seas and human health through the food chain. To show the scale of the problem, it is estimated that 8.5 billion straws are thrown away in the UK each year. In April, to combat the effects of throwaway plastics on our rivers and oceans, the UK Government announced a consultation on the ban of single-use plastic drinking straws.
