In the United States, 500 Million plastic straws are used daily. Many of these straws are thrown away in our oceans and harming sea life.
Did You Know?
Plastic straws are among the top 10 plastic debris found during coastal cleanups. They may be small but are a big concern for our oceans, lakes and rivers. An estimated 100,000 marine animals are killed annually due to plastic debris. Blue Marble Straws works to respect and protect marine life by replacing one plastic straw at a time.
1.6 straws per person per day
The amount of straws used by Americans can wrap around the Earth 2.5 times!
Straws are lightweight so they are easily blown into our waterways.
In most places, straws can’t be recycled. It takes up to 200 years for a plastic straw to decompose.
Harmful to animals
1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals die from ingesting plastic.
