Plastic drinking straws are small things, but the impact is huge. Well, you know, governments and large companies have banned the use of plastics.

According to the CNN news story, nearly eight million TONS of plastic waste goes into oceans and waterways each year. Now try to imagine the consequence of this. Moreover, it has been estimated that by the year 2050, there will be more plastics than fish in the oceans.  1

Negative Consequence of Plastics

So this is the high time to find non-plastic alternatives

Breaks Food Chain

Aquatic and wild animals eat the small pieces of plastic, later these are consumed by humans. Thus, it is the root cause of many chronic diseases. Besides that, they break the food chain and ecological balance.

End up in Landfills

If these do not end up in oceans, these stay in the landfills. Moreover, plastics are not biodegradable. They take a hundred years to decompose, but when they decompose, they emit toxins and chemicals, which also affect our environment.  

Property Damage

It adds to the debris and causes property damage. The interesting thing is, these single-use tools are one of the top five elements removed from the sand.
