You have to wonder how a small thing like a drinking straw can have a big impact on the world and/or the environment. It’s quite an impediment nowadays and though it seems like a little problem, it isn’t. I remember the old days of not giving a care in the world and having fun with my plastic straw while blowing bubbles in my beverage and carelessly throwing it away after I use it.
Apparently, it’s a big no-no now. We live in a world where we try to save the environment as much as we can. There are so many ways straws hurt our environment and it’s good to have a read about it just to find out how you can help in little ways.
Since we are now aware that plastic straws are exceptionally bad (no excuse about it), we have to find an alternative way to still enjoy our drinks without spilling on our clothes or making those silly bubbles we are all guilty of.
But before we go to what our other options are, we need to know how big the impact is really of these small plastic straws on our life and the world we live in. Many marine animals mistake these and other plastic items for food. Within the next decade, there could be a pound of plastic for every three pounds of fish in the ocean.
There have also been suggestions from everyone on banning plastic straws, but it doesn’t seem to make a lot of difference. Luckily, there are creative minds who invented an alternative to plastic straws. This new era of drinking straws is reusable so they’re cost-friendly and doesn’t harm the environment at all (Hooray to the fishies!)
