It is estimated that over 500 million plastic straws are used daily in the US, which is enough to fill 125 school buses!! Straws are one of the top debris that are littering our oceans and beaches. A simple act that can help reduce plastic pollution is to simply say no to straws when ordering a drink at a restaurant; encourage your friends and family to do the same.
